"I met a colleague on a training course last year and we realised we lived close to one another. Each week we coordinate our diaries so that we can car share together... The beauty of this is that a great friendship has developed."

How you can get involved

Do you know who you want to car share with?

From your home page, click on the 'search members' link under your profile picture to find them or click on the 'find a member' link at the bottom right of the screen from the search page. Once you've found the person you want to share with, you can see their journey and send them a request to share.

Please print your new permit

Liftshare members who are sharing can now print their own permits - no waiting for it to turn up in the post. Simply go to 'Liftshare Teams' from the menu bar on your profile page and select 'Parking permit', the permit will load on a new page which you can print and place on your windscreen.

How to validate your journey to use a car share bay

Make sure you authenticate your ride every day with your Liftshare partner.

You can validate your car share journey via the Liftshare App by scaning the QR code on the driver's app. When a Liftshare Parking Permit is scanned (by a parking attendant), the scanner will show whether those in that car have shared their journey that day or not.

It really is as simple as it sounds

Car sharing allows you to share your commute with others who make similar journeys every day. Catch a ride with a colleague, or offer to drive others yourself - simply decide what works best for you (or whose car is better) and get going. Our scheme is a flexible and convenient way to adapt your commute.

Driving to work is easy, and preferable for many of us at Heathrow, but we can make it more cost-effective with a more collective approach. Car sharing allows you to benefit in a number of ways:

  • Receive priority parking - a real luxury at Heathrow
  • Reduce monthly petrol spend by splitting fuel costs Click here to calculate your savings
  • Reduce the wear and tear of your car by making fewer journeys
  • Socialise on your commute

Liftshare is the UK's leading car sharing platform, and hosts the car share scheme here at Heathrow. The wonderfully simple yet effective system matches together commuters who make similar journeys, or travel in the same direction, each day. The result? Organised travel, shared transport costs and reduced congestion on our roads and in our increasingly busy car parks.

Heathrow has its own dedicated Liftshare page which is tailored to you and your Heathrow colleagues. Did you know that Heathrow Liftshare is one of the single largest car sharing sites in the world? The system looks for matches in your area, as well as those you could pick up en-route to work, so you have a great chance of finding a car share that works with your shift pattern and your home location.
