Car Share Sheffield

Recommended Posts

Hi I’ve set up a car Share page on Facebook. It’s called Car Share Sheffield. Please feel free to add your journeys, and help reduce the amount of cars on the road. Thank you!

Yes because it’s really hard to  use them for really local and impromptu journeys ie a trip to town. Those sites are better for one off longer trips.

But they’re not being used enough, maybe because people want a more      transparent/people friendly approach that Facebook is more likely  to give.  Even if one journey is made from this page then that’s a bonus. Some positivity would be great!

You'll get little positivity on here, on here the mode is of the "stick in the mud" variety, its famous for it.

Great idea. Good to see someone trying to do something positive

Why people have to be so negative and abrasive is beyond me. 

 

A dedicated social media group may be beneficial to some, the main reason being listed in an earlier post.  If "people dont want strangers say in their car", then surely the opportunity to pre-vet a bit via facebook would be beneficial?.

 

It may take off, it may not, but you cant knock the member for trying. Any degree of success would lead to a potential reduction in harmful emissions in the city.

 

I sometimes think that should people have nothing constructive or maybe mildly positive to say, they shouldnt say anything at all. Some people are just so unnecessarily rude!
