Australia Liftshare was launched to support the Southbound Festival, helping music fans get to the event at less cost to themselves and the environment. The new nationwide website - www.AustraliaLiftshare.com - is free to use and allows members to register their journey and search for others going their way so they can travel together.
Over two-thirds of those who signed up to car-share to Southbound found a suitable match on the system for their journey - while the typical commuter who car-shares every day saves hundreds of dollars a year in fuel costs. As one member, Jeff, said: "Your scheme has been fantastic. Not only do I have great company now but you've also halved my costs!"
The Australian website is a new addition to what is already the world's largest car-sharing network, which has seen 350,000 members sign up to date.
Founder Ali Clabburn told Australian drivers: "Petrol prices may be increasing again, but there are things we can do to fight it! Joining Australia Liftshare only takes a few minutes and won't cost you a cent, but it could end up saving you hundreds - even thousands - of dollars a year."
