If you car share with people outside your household or support bubble, you can reduce the risk of coronavirus transmission by:
One of you can drive, and split the costs between you. Or take turns, and reduce the commuting stress. Sharing the drive means fewer cars on the road, so you'll do the environment a favour too.
Use CarShareGM, our secure online matching service, to find local people who make a similar journey to you.
It's free, and simple to join.
You can ask to share with certain people – like women only, or non-smokers for instance.
You can be matched with people from your own company only, or choose from drivers who work for other organisations too.
And you could even get extra incentives, like a guaranteed parking space, or an alternative lift home if there's a problem.
You can use CarShareGM if your employer is a member. There's a list of CarShareGM employers at the start of the registration form.
If you can't see your organisation, contact email@example.com, and we can ask them to join: it's free for employers too.
When you've signed up for CarShareGM you'll get a list of potential driving partners.
If you think someone is suitable, contact them to sort things out. It's best to meet at a workplace first, and to ask for identification.

Why not trial it and see if a match works for you? If not, there's no obligation: if you don't want to share with someone, you don't have to.
