Carpooling and car sharing

Looking for sustainable ways to drive? 


Carpooling is sharing a ride with at least one other person to reduce driving costs and reduce the number of vehicles on the road.

Carpooling is a more sustainable option for individuals who do not need their car every day, and have a consistent work or school schedule. In addition to helping curb greenhouse gas emissions, it’s a more cost-effective way to travel. Just carpooling one day a week means a 20% reduction in weekly wear and tear on your vehicle.

Car sharing

Car sharing is a type of car rental where people rent cars for short periods of time. It enables occasional use of a vehicle or access to different kinds of vehicles.

Car sharing is an ideal option for people who regularly rely on walking, cycling and/or public transit for their daily transportation, but occasionally need access to a vehicle for out of town trips, moving large items or other special occasions.

By paying membership to a car sharing service, you have access to a fleet of vehicles on an hourly basis when the need arises.

Communauto (formerly Vrtucar) is the car sharing service operating in London.
