    Would like to get a lift. Don't mind how early I leave London (well as it isn't 2am in the morning or anything daft).

    I will be driving from Barons Court, leaving 6:30-7pm (tbc), and can take 1-2 passengers. Email me via the website if you would like a lift.

    Anyone want to start a car pool from Hertfordshire?

    May 19, 2013

    • Ange

      Hi Dave, yes that does help a lot I'm not too far away from you. How are you getting there? I'm happy to drive if you want to share?

      June 1, 2013

    • Dave

      Okay. It's a deal. I don't mind driving either. Guess we can sort out details nearer the time by email.

  • Mark L

    Looks like we have a car pool heading up from SW London. Anyone want to join in.... Give us a shout....

    2 · May 13, 2013

    • Eliza

      Hi Mark. I've heard back from Jane. Still not sure: is this one big car pool or two separate? Thanks

      May 16, 2013

    • Jane

      As already stated, it looks like there is enough need for more than one car pool. It therefore makes sense for people with cars to offer to take people without cars.
