What savings will I make by car sharing?
Car sharing saves you money on fuel, parking, wear & tear
and substantially reduces your carbon footprint and environmental impact.
if you make a journey of 12 miles each way to and from work that is made 5 days a week,
45 weeks per year you would make the following savings:
- Typical fuel costs would be over £1,000 for that journey for a year.
If it was shared with one other person both sharers would make a saving
of over £500 each per year.
- Assuming a parking cost of £2 per day for 45 weeks the total cost is £450 per year.
Two people sharing this journey would save £225 each per year.
Wear & tear
- Reducing your car use not only saves on fuel, but also reduces wear & tear.
- Car sharing on the example journey for a year would avoid over a ton of CO2 emissions in total,
and reduce each sharer's annual carbon footprint by over half a ton.
