Liftsharing Scheme

Sharing a car to and from work is an amazing way to get to know your colleagues and be part of London Stansted Airport’s community. But there are many more great reasons to get involved with liftsharing – cutting the cost of travel, reducing your carbon footprint, and speeding up your commute (particularly if you’d be getting public transport otherwise).

There are 50 designated bays in Enterprise House car park for members of the liftsharing scheme (one member must already be entitled to park in Enterprise House in order to gain entry).

All we ask is that you only park in the Liftshare bays on the days you actually share. Two individuals must be present in the car when entering and leaving the Liftshare bays.

For more information, phone 01279 663322 or collect a leaflet from the Stansted Commuter stands located in Enterprise House reception.

Drivers must be fully insured. Most motor insurance companies will cover you for carrying passengers on your journey to and from work at no increased cost. However, we suggest that you inform your insurance company that you intend to liftshare.

The driver should inform the other members of the liftsharing team as soon as possible so that alternative arrangements can be made.

An Emergency Ride Home facility is in place for Airport Liftsharers. A taxi will take you from your place of work to your doorstep in the case of an emergency.

To book this service please call Stansted Street Cars on 01279 211 111, provide them your name, company, destination, Liftshare membership and airport ID number, together with a brief reason for why the journey is needed and a taxi will be provided.

This facility is monitored; misuse will result in your Liftshare pool and account being removed from the scheme.

All liftshares are set up on a trial basis. If, after a few weeks, you feel you want to drop out or try sharing with another team, then just let us know.

If you move house, please let the Airport Commuter Centre know. If you would like to continue liftsharing, you can create a new journey search on the Stansted Liftshare website to find other members to share with.

If, for whatever reason, your circumstances change and affect your liftshare, please notify the Airport Commuter Centre and the members of your liftshare Budi team so that we can update your details on the database.

No, many people are happy to offer lifts in exchange for sharing the fuel costs. You can register your journey as ‘seeking a lift’ if you do not have a car.

Your member details are stored securely in our database, and other members can only see your intended travel information – not your personal details, such as your home address.

We recommend liftsharing members follow a few simple security measures to stay safe:

  • Avoid exchanging home addresses with your travelling companion before you meet them.

  • Arrange for your initial meeting on-site, within the terminal or Enterprise House.

  • Inform a friend or family member of who you will be travelling with, when you’ll be travelling, and details of your journey.

  • Make sure you see each other’s IDs – passports, student cards, or driving licences – to make sure you’re travelling with the right person.

Remember: You’re under no obligation to go ahead with any car-share arrangement. If you have any doubts about your travelling companion, for any reason, then you don’t have to travel with them.

We recommend you arrange a mutually convenient and safe location for both parties.
