Birmingham City Council


To promote more efficient use of road space and alleviate congestion Birmingham City Council has worked with Jambusters Limited to launch a FREE web based car matching system, carshareBirmingham.

carshareBirmingham is aimed at employees of organisations and businesses wanting to make a positive contribution towards reducing traffic congestion and on-site parking needs.

Once affiliated to carshareBirmingham, your employees can register with the service. carshareBirmingham then gives them their own unique password and a simple guide to the procedures, rules and etiquette. carshareBirmingham software will then begin to identify car share matches for two or more people for long-term or ad hoc arrangements and off-site shared attendance at other locations.

Good for business:
  • car sharing can help solve your parking problems and save money by reducing the number of car parking spaces needed,
  • improve efficiency as car sharers strike up friendships and have informal work related conversations during their commute,
  • reduce your CO2 emissions.

Good for people:

  • save money on fuel costs and wear and tear on your car,
  • Lower the stress of commuting with less driving time and good company.

Good for Birmingham:

  • Fewer vehicles travelling means less congestion and a better flowing road network,
  • Improves air quality and reduces noise pollution.

The TravelWise Team can visit your business or organisation to explain how carshareBirmingham works, train the on-site administrator, discuss how to maximise use of the service and to answer any questions you or your employees may have.
