five ways car share 2

7:56am 17th January 2014

As Dorset's car share scheme celebrates its 10th birthday this week, we've been speaking to some of its users.

The free service set up by Dorset County Council allows people to register on a database to find like-minded others to share their work journeys with.

Mike Potter's been travelling from Blandford to Dorchester with two other people for the last 18 months.

He says saving money is just one of the benefits.


Kelton Adams and Ollie Baker are Sherborne and we asked them what they thought the main benefits of the scheme are.


Sue Saddler has been car sharing for 8 of the 10 years which the service has been going.

She says it hasn't just saved her money.
