“Northamptonshire County Council (NCC) provided us with 56 parking spaces. All will be needed in September”, says Tony Lynch, CEO of Faxi Ltd. 

Faxi is a company that promotes ridesharing in large companies and organisations by reserving parking space for ridesharers. 

This allows those companies and organisations to save on parking space. NCC is a point in case. Four months ago, hardly 1% of its 1,500 daily commuters rideshared to work. 

By prioritising on-site parking for Faxi ridesharers, NCC is pushing that figure up to 10% by September, removing 100 commuter cars from the road every day. 

Employees publish their journeys to work on the online Faxi platform, and over 50% are then joined on their commute by (paying) co-workers with matching routes to and from work. 

Only those cars proven to carry multiple employees to work are issued a parking space.

A survey at NCC shows commute groups of three paying passengers and up, who all said they previously drove to work on their own. 

As a result, overall commuting into NCC offices is up to an hour faster, and cheaper for participating employees.
