Car share

NTU operates a car-sharing scheme especially for students. It's designed to help you reduce your daily travel costs and CO2 emissions at the same time.

It's totally free to use. It enables you to find others going your way, so you can share the journey. You can:

  • take turns driving
  • offer someone a lift in exchange for a contribution to the fuel costs
  • look for someone to give you a lift.

You can access your account online once you've registered. It makes searching as convenient as possible. You can choose to search for matches:

  • among NTU students, or
  • from the whole nationwide Liftshare database.

You don't have to do it every day. It's completely flexible. Once you've found others going your way, you decide among yourselves how often it suits you to share.

Discover for yourself just how much money you can save by car-sharing. Sign up and find a car-share companion or two.

By foot

Walking or running is one of the best ways to stay healthy whilst travelling to campus. NTU has created a traffic free heart of campus at the three main campuses and works with the local authorities to continually improve public facilities. Information on local walks from campus, mostly in green spaces, can be found on the sustainability web pages, which can improve the health and wellbeing of students.
