Businesses are being invited to sign up to a new journey sharing platform to save their staff money and help reduce emissions.
Join My Journey is a free online service that matches commuters up from the same workplace to share walking, cycling and car journeys.
It has been commissioned by Bristol City Council, working with Travelwest and South Gloucestershire Council, to give people more options when it comes to the daily commute.
Business leaders across Bristol and the West of England are now being encouraged to sign up their companies and organisations to the online platform so their staff can easily share journeys to work.
To get started a designated person from each business needs to register for free with the website and create a company hub.
Once the hub has been verified, members of staff can start using Join My Journey to save money, reduce rush hour congestion and pollution and connect with co-workers.
For anyone who does not work in a large company, there is also the option to join an area hub, where smaller businesses are linked up with others to share journeys to the same area.
Join My Journey has been trialled with the University of the West of England and North Bristol NHS Trust.
To use Join My Journey, simply register, create or join a hub, search for a journey, then join a journey or host one.
Safety features include only being visible to colleagues in the same workplace or agreed businesses nearby.
Get started at joinmyjourney.org.uk.
