TRANSPORT

There is growing scientific evidence showing that people who commute by bicycle live longer healthier lives than people who commute by car. Changing to a more active way of travelling (walking, sharing a journey, cycling or taking a bus) is the easiest way to bring exercise into our daily routines, as well as reduce our carbon footprint. Sharing cars also helps reduce local carbon emissions as other air pollutants.

As a community-run car-share scheme ( 28 households and four cars as at August 2013), set up and run totally voluntarily, we are keen to share our experience, systems and advice with other groups considering setting up a similar scheme. This method of sharing the running costs of a car, as well as the other responsibilities that come with a car, is also a great way to reduce your carbon-footprint and suitable for rural and urban areas alike, most ideal for households who use a car on average three times a week or less.
