12th April 2011

As part of DIT Green Week, Dr Mike Murphy, Dean of Engineering and Built Environment, launched a Car-Sharing Website for DIT Staff and Students – www.carsharing.ie/DIT. This is an initiative of the DIT Smarter Travel Working Group and the National Transport Authority. The website can be found on www.carsharing.ie/DIT and can be used to match up DIT staff and students who travel in the same direction each day or week.

Just log on to the site using your DIT email address (for students, please ensure you use the @student.dit.ie e-mail address). It’s completely free to use. You can also use the site to look for public lifts, if there’s nobody from DIT going in your direction.

According to the 2009 DIT Travel Survey, 15% of the DIT population occasionally car-share, with 6% of these respondents travelling to the same destination as their driver (i.e. one of the DIT campuses). We hope this initiative will increase car-sharing, as 46% of respondents said they would be interested in a DIT car-sharing scheme.

The Smarter Travel Working Group was formed in 2009 to support staff and students in DIT who are choosing sustainable transport methods to commute to college. All staff and students are welcome to get involved in the group.
