Aberdeenshire Council is encouraging as many people as possible to share car journeys as part of National Liftshare Week.

The local authority is once again supporting the UK-wide initiative, which begins on Monday, October 6, and hopes to encourage and enable more people to discover the benefits of car sharing.

Thousands have signed up to the online car sharing project Car Share Aberdeenshire (www.carshareaberdeenshire.com) since 2006.

Chair of the Infrastructure Services Committee, Councillor Peter Argyle said: “Car Share Aberdeenshire is a free, confidential and without obligation scheme which helps you find a lift or someone to share your lift with and I hope people across the area consider signing up to the scheme as part of this year’s National Liftshare Week.”
