If you have to use the car, why not see if there’s someone in your area who might be travelling the same route?
If you’re interested to see who’s travelling your way but just don’t know where to start, sign up to Kentjourneyshare. You can receive updates when other members are travelling your way. You can set your profile to seek or offer a lift – or both!
If you’re a student at the University of Greenwich, Kent or Canterbury Christ Church, you can sign up to 5HARE, your own private car share scheme.
