About us

First Great Western is pleased to offer our customers a new way to plan their commute to work and their leisure trips.

We have launched a partnership with Liftshare, the UK’s largest car-sharing network, which will allow you to register your regular journey online and find a travel buddy, so you can share lifts. This facility will help you find others going the same way as you; you can then contact them and make your arrangements to share.

This opportunity may be especially welcome to help you overcome problems caused by the severe flooding across parts of our network.

It doesn’t matter whether you have a car or not. You can either offer a lift (in exchange for a contribution to your fuel costs), request a lift, or take turns driving with a regular travel buddy.
