(Car) Share the love on Valentines day!

In celebration of Valentine’s day, the University of Essex as part of their Go Green Week are promoting sharing the love by car sharing. (Here is a link to the full Go Green schedule for the week)

If you study or work at the Uni drop into Square 3 between 12:30 and 14:30 on the 14th February to pick up your free heart shaped lolly and to find out more about the Uni’s Faxi car share matching scheme

Faxi is a fun, visual app that helps you find car share partners amongst the University community who are travelling to the University through instant messaging.

You can join the Uni’s Faxi group at faxi.co.uk/@CO43SQ

To find out more about car sharing and the financial and social benefits watch Purdy and Baz’s video. They started car sharing for their six mile round trip to work and saved £180 a year.  After car sharing together for a while, they found they had more than just the journey to work in common!

To find out more about car sharing, look at Share journeys share costs If you want to look for a car share partner to a destination other that the University of Essex you can also sign up to www.essex.liftshare.com

There are dedicated car park bays for car sharers in preferential locations in town centre car parks (normal charges apply) and FREE (eight hours max) car share bays at Colchester Station.
