This flexible car / passenger sharing scheme emerged from the ashes of the Route 18 service connecting Standlake, Northmoor, Bablockhythe, Stanton Harcourt and Eynsham. With a start-up grant from OCC, the group has developed an identity card scheme – initially encouraging drivers from outlying villages to offer lifts into Eynsham for shops and services.
Founder member Mike Parker says,
“We are happy for anyone who drives along this corridor in either direction to get involved.”
When you travel together you cut the cost of petrol and parking, reduce congestion and cut pollution – and help sustain the local economy too. You can join up, request or offer a lift on their Facebook page.
Smartphone users may also be interested in the messaging group, which puts members in touch with one other precisely when they need help. To be added to the Eynsham Link WhatsApp group, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
