If your organisation would like to promote car sharing as an economical & practical transport alternative, BlaBlaCar offers two free widgets that you will find valuable.
Driver widget > Offer a ride
This widget is ideal if your audience have cars, and are planning a long distance journey to your venue. It will allow them to offer their empty seats on BlaBlaCar, and offset their petrol costs by taking paying passengers. By helping your audience avoid travelling in single occupancy vehicles, you can reduce the environmental impact of their journey and alleviate pressure on your parking facilities.

Passenger widget > Find a ride
This widget is ideal if your audience are not coming to your venue in their own car, and are looking for an affordable travel alternative. For example, you can display it on your “How to get here” page, it will allow your visitors to find a ride in one click and save on travel (the cost of a trip in a car share is 76% less than a train).

Anyone can use these widgets, and they are completely free. They would be very useful to organisations and venues that attract numerous visitors such as universities, festivals, tourist destinations, city councils...
Why promote car sharing?
Providing a car sharing widget on your site is a practical, added-value service that your audience will appreciate, but it’s also a positive sign of your active environmental engagement. So, encouraging your audience to car share is a great idea, for your organisation, for your audience and for the planet!
