    The current emphasis on congestion, pollution, quality of transport and the spiralling costs of energy has led to a growth of interest in social forms of transport, such as car and lift share schemes. Together with greener fuel and use of technology, it is possible to widen transport choices available. However, there has been user reluctance to join car/lift share schemes, even though these would offer benefits: lower costs, less congestion and carbon reduction. A pilot study was undertaken to understand the UK current situation and to inform debate about future developments in social transport.
