Karshare has been made possible by the people behind Car & Away, an airport car sharing service which launched at London Gatwick in 2017, followed by Bristol airport in 2019. With each passing day during this Covid-19 crisis, it’s clear that the people who are self-isolating are finding it increasingly difficult to have access to food, essentials and even medicine – particularly the elderly and more vulnerable. And with the food banks and aid sources being stretched to their limit we can all try and do our bit to help. With our dependency growing daily on NHS professionals and other key care workers it is vital that they can travel to and from work 24 hours a day with minimal exposure to potential infection. Being in the business of car sharing, we recognised that we have the perfect platform and operations systems to help right now. Our simple goal is to mobilise a fleet of cars, all donated by the generous (car owning) members of the community – for frontline workers to ensure they can maintain essential services for those who need the most care right now.
