Car Share

Car SharingImage of car made from crowd of people

The University runs a scheme for staff who want to share lifts coming to Walton Hall. You can then split your fuel costs as well as cut your carbon footprint. For these users we provide specially designated spaces for car sharers.

Users should follow Government guidelines on the sharing of cars and the 2 m distancing rules which are being applied.

Each car sharer is issued a Car Share Permit and the special parking spaces can only be used by cars displaying the permit, to show that the passenger(s) and driver have shared their journey to work.  Please note that you will only be issued with a permit once you have registered and grouped yourself on the car share database.

To register for car sharing use the Jambusters Online Database

Car Parking Regulations for Car Share Members

  • The permit will need to be displayed in the windscreen by cars parked in the car share bays
  • The permit is not transferable
  • Car share members not matched will not be able to use the bays
  • Parking in a car share bay not displaying a permit is not permitted
  • Copying of car share permits is not permitted
  • 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

Car Share Permits

The Car Share Permit is sent with a self-adhesive clear plastic wallet, to be affixed to your windscreen preferably above where your old Road Fund Licence (Tax Disc) was displayed.

Our designated car share bays are depicted with a red line and 'S'. There are 78 bays across Main Campus and East Campus.  72 spaces are on Main Campus and 6 spaces on 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.

To find where the car share parking bays are located around Campus see the map.
