What is car Sharing?

Car share refers to two or more people from outside the same family sharing their journey. Informal car share may be an option for families travelling from a similar direction, especially to rural schools where the car may be the primary mode of travel. Car share can help to cut congestion outside the school gates.

Formal car share schemes involving children cannot be promoted by schools. However, many families will continue to informally car share to school. Schools can facilitate the introduction of families who may wish to car share.
