Parish Lift


An online car sharing scheme, developed by Gloucestershire County Council, is now available to residents living in communities across the west Cotswolds.
The scheme is community focused; providing an important platform for arranging journeys and supporting accessibility and inclusively for residents living in rural and isolated areas with limited travel options. 

Residents can register their trips and we can find matches for people heading in the same direction, at similar times on a particular day. You can sign up as a driver or somebody seeking a lift (or both!) to make shared journeys to and from your destination. You can even look at where people are going and if you could tailor your travel arrangements around their availability or request journeys. Details are available at their website or download the Flyer.
