Coronavirus (COVID-19): safer commuting guidance for commuters and workplaces
The government, in consultation with industry, has produced guidance to help ensure commuters and workplaces are as safe as possible. Following on from that advice, we have updated our guidelines and included a series of illustrations to show our members how to share responsibly.

Why car-sharing was considered
The 2011 census reported that approximately 394,700 West Sussex residents are in employment. Of these 58% (c.229,000) usually drive to work with a further 4.7% commuting as car passengers (c.18,550). Therefore at least around 37,000 employed residents currently car-share to work. The main target audience is therefore the 192,000 people that currently drive alone to work.
