Whilst we like to do what we can to promote sustainable travel choices, we know that for some people and some trips, the only viable option is to travel by car.

Whilst there are times when it’s easy enough to walk, cycle or hop on the bus, for some people and some trips, the only realistic option is to travel by car. That’s not to say you can’t still save money and do you bit for the environment.

Join the FREE West Yorkshire car share scheme and you’ll be surprised how many people are making similar journeys to you! It’s really flexible – share every day or just infrequently, choose to drive, be a passenger or take it in turns.

You can also make your car journeys more efficient, whether by changing your car, your driving style, or by choosing the best route. Further information is provided below and to the right.
