    EasitSHARE

    EasitSHARE is a journey share scheme managed by easit. Oxford BROOKES Staff will need to create an easit account to have access to the easitSHARE scheme, however an easitCARD is not required.

    Along with car sharing journeys, the easitSHARE will also allows members to register walk, bus, cycle or train journeys as well as car sharing options, in case they would like some company on their journey.

    When you register a journey you want to share, you will be able to choose some criteria details of the type of individual that they would be comfortable sharing the journey with. You can also limit your journey to solely the easitMEMBERS at Oxford BROOKES, the local easitOXFORD network or the full easit network. Your journey will only appear in the searches of easitMEMBERS who fulfill your criteria details.

    Like other journey share schemes, searches will only show basic details for possible sharers. EasitSHARE members can inquire about possible journey shares with an individual and an automated email will be sent out from easit. This email will contain the requester's basic information and ask the individual to accept or decline the journey share offer. If accepted then the two individuals will be able to contact each other directly to discuss specific journey share details.

    If guidance regarding the scheme are required, easit have provided Transport services with guidance notes. Please email Transport services for further information.
