How do I get started?

Sign up with your university email address

The system will only accept registrations using valid university email addresses. You will need to verify your ownership of this email address before you can access the carpooling community.

Complete your profile

We only require a few details, such as whether you are a student or staff member, and how you would prefer people to contact you.

Carpooling, as with other online sharing communities works best when based on trust, so please feel free to share a more rounded profile to help people get to know you.

Add your home address

The system will not share your address with anyone and will add a random adjustment to show an approximation of your address so that other members can see roughly how far away you are.

If you are having trouble finding your address in the system, just use a nearby street.

Join the appropriate campus group(s)

Browse to the Campuses section. Join one or more campus groups and check your matches, either in the group directory or the group map, to see who you might be able to share with. If you see someone that looks suitable, get in touch with them via the telephone number or email address provided and see what you can work out.

If you don't find someone right away, check back in a few weeks' time to see if anyone new has joined.

Is that all?

Yes, that's all you need to do. We know that you're busy, and the last thing that anyone needs is more forms to fill out, so we have kept this as simple as possible.

Things to remember

This is not a taxi service

This is a community made up of people just like you. They are probably busy, just like you. Don't expect someone to drop everything because you need to be somewhere in half an hour.

It costs money to run a car

Fuel, tyres, registration, parking and insurance... It all adds up. Don't be offended if someone asks you to chip in for that - you'll probably still save money. To avoid any confusion, work it out beforehand.
