The University runs a scheme for people who want to share lifts coming to Walton Hall. You can then split your fuel costs as well as cut your carbon footprint. We also provide specially designated spaces for car sharers.
Each car sharer is issued a Car Share Permit and the special parking spaces can be used by cars displaying at least 2 permits and the passenger(s) and drivers have shared their journey to work..
To register for car sharing use the NEW Online Database.
The Car Share Permits are sent together with a self-adhesive clear plastic wallet that holds two permits, to be affixed to your windscreen preferably above where your Road Fund Licence (Tax Disc) is displayed.
Our designated car share bays are depicted with a red line and 'S'. There are 73 bays across campus and east campus. Only car sharers may use these bays. Non car sharers parking in the bays will be deemed to have breached the regulations and as such may be ticketed.
At least 2 permits will need to be displayed in the windscreen by cars parked here. The permits are not transferable. Car share members not matched will not be able to use the bays.
Car sharers may only use the bays when they have shared their journey to work so if your car share partner is off sick, leave or absent then you will not be able to use the bay.
As from 1st August 2006 Fixed Penalty Notices have been introduced for breaches in the parking regulations. The fine will be £80 reducing to £40 if paid within 28 days. This has been approved both by relevant University Committee and the University Council. For more information:
