Can you “Take Me Too!”? Drivers wanted for exciting lift share project.

Can you “Take Me Too!”?   Drivers wanted for lift share project. 

Do you ever make a journey with empty seats in your car?  Do you care about making Pembrokeshire a friendlier, better connected place to live? 

A local community transport charity is looking for 500 drivers to join its community lift sharing network, Take Me Too!, in Pembrokeshire this summer. 

This exciting project will allow drivers to offer spare seats in their car in return for a contribution towards expenses and the “feel good factor” of helping people in their community who would otherwise struggle to make their journey.  Sharing journeys is also a greener way to travel, so you’ll be doing the planet a favour too!

Take Me Too! is run by local community transport charity PACTO (Pembrokeshire Association of Community Transport Organisations) with funding from The National Lottery Community Fund.  PACTO has been working with local tech company Writemedia to develop the Website and App software for this new service.

Debbie Johnson from PACTO said “It’s simple and free to sign up – just go to  Anyone aged 18 or over who lives in Pembrokeshire or regularly travels in or around the county is welcome. Once you’ve signed up, we’ll contact you if we receive a journey request that we think you might be able to help with.  We won’t expect you to make a special trip, but if you’re going that way anyway you might like to offer a lift.”   

Ady Poole, the Take Me Too! Project Coordinator said “People are worried about the cost of living rising and the fall in their disposable income so this may be a way to share the cost and share the journey. Hopefully we can help the people of Pembrokeshire in these trying times”.

Take Me Too! is now open for drivers to sign up.  The full lift-matching service will be launching later this summer.

Caroline Wilson, Chairwoman of the PACTO trustees said, "TakeMeToo is such an amazing project that has a huge potential for everyone in Pembrokeshire.  Not only to cut the cost of travelling around but the opportunity to make new friends, travel to new places, travel efficiently whether it’s to work or for social reasons.  I hope employers in Pembrokeshire will engage with TMT to encourage their employees to sign up to be a driver and or a passenger.  Community organisations, such as the WI, Merched Y Wawr, Girl guiding, Scouting, the Urdd, could all benefit from this scheme, helping members stay and to encourage more to attend who maybe have stopped driving or have no access to transport.

Surely it is the way forward - what are you waiting for - sign up today.  You have nothing to lose ".
