The calculation, which takes into account the distance and frequency of the journeys registered on the car share network show that there has been a dramatic increase in the popularity of car sharing over the past few months. Suspected reasons for this change in attitude are thought to be as a result of increased awareness of climate change and rising fuel prices which have been dominating the media in recent months.
Ali Clabburn, founder of Liftshare said:
"10,000 tonnes is a real milestone and this only takes into account the number of people who have formally matched up through Liftshare. There must be thousands more out there who are sharing informally. Car sharing is booming in the UK at the moment and we're very confident that it's only going to grow and grow."
