Coming to the match? Why not GoCarShare?
In a bid to help ease traffic congestion on busy match days in Taunton, Somerset County Cricket Club have teamed up with GoCarShare.com.
GoCarShare.com is a website that seeks to match people wanting to go to a particular place with someone who is already driving to that destination. Drivers and passengers post their journeys on the site and passengers then search for suitable people to car share with. They can then apply and/or message the driver.
The driver then lets the passenger know whether they can share with them by accepting them if it suits, or declining them if it doesn’t. They then split the cost of travel and therefore drivers save money on fuel whilst passengers get cheap and convenient travel.
Once the journey is complete, they can leave each other feedback.
GoCarShare is linked with Facebook and therefore customers can find out information about fellow users ahead of the journey.
Somerset County Cricket Club’s Head of Commercial Operations Jez Curwin said: “We are always looking at ways of improving the match day experience for our supporters and one topic that always comes up in discussions is travel. Match days always see an increase in the volume of traffic in Taunton and with parking at a premium this year, we want to help ease journeys as much as possible, in any way we can.”
