Rail firm urges lift sharing to stations

The Oxford Times: Oxford Railway Station Oxford Railway Station

RAIL passengers across Oxfordshire are being encouraged to share a lift to the train station as part of a new initiative.

First Great Western has teamed up with car pooling company Liftshare to help cut down on the number of vehicles travelling to the county’s stations.

A dedicated website has been set up to allow rail customers to sign up for free and then meet like-minded car poolers.

Liftshare’s head of membership Cecilia Bromley-Martin said: “Sharing lifts reduces the stress of a commute, as well as saving you money and makes the journey safer.”

First Great Western says just over a quarter of commuters currently car share when travelling to work.

If they reopened Grove station then many of us wouldn't need to drive to Didcot station. I wouldn't need to use a car at all for work if the trains stopped at Grove.
