Together we can save the environment and minimise the carbon footprint. One of the latest good initiates helping the environment is London cabs sharing solution. Instead of 40 000 active cabs in London, we could make it 1/3 if more people shared cabs. Prices can go down heavily if 3 people share a cab; in reality it might be almost the same fare as a bus ride for some journeys. However, the minicabs sharing will obvious be quicker than normal bus rides.
How to promote cab sharing?
A good way to get started with shared transport is by putting up sticky-notes on the fridge and other places at work. You can of course also email collegues and friends and check if they want to share a minicab with you. Alternatively, call the cab company and make it a surprise who you meet.
So when is a good time to split the transport? Especially longer transports, such as London to Gatwick, Heathrow or nearby university transfers might be the best options.
