Liftango is excited to announce it has just launched one of the largest B2B car share networks in the UK, My Journey, across the South of England.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Liftango is excited to announce it has just launched one of the largest B2B car share networks in the UK.

My Journey, a sustainable travel initiative from Southampton City Council, Hampshire County Council and Portsmouth City Council, chose Liftango's leading car share solution to help 14 of the largest businesses in the region including Ordnance Survey, Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service, University of Southampton, Freightliner Group and Portsmouth Hospital University NHSTrust, to offer sustainable commuting for staff and students. There are plans to expand the scheme to a further 12 businesses in the region, within the next few weeks.

The project, funded by National Highways, aims to help the region and its major organisations reduce congestion, ease parking pressures and achieve their net zero goals. By using Liftango’s dynamic car share technology, employees within the participating businesses are now able to travel more sustainably to and from their premises.

Liftango is providing one curated car share platform, designed to reduce single car usage and promote shared transportation. The platform will provide the My Journey Workplaces network with personalised business dashboards to manage and report on usage, as well as measure carbon emissions. 

The platform includes a user-friendly app for employees that utilises a secure car share network to dynamically match car sharers. Approved users of the app will be able to match with others on the network that take similar routes to work, reducing commuting costs and carbon footprints for those individuals across the participating businesses. There are prizes and incentives to reward those who sign up and choose to make more sustainable commuting decisions.

Councillor Eammon Keogh, Cabinet Member for Environment and Transport at Southampton City Council said: “We are excited to have launched the My Journey Car Share app with Liftango. It will contribute to reducing congestion and improving air quality across the Solent region by reducing single occupancy car journeys. Liftango have pulled out all the stops to get the easy-to-use app ready and we hope it will prove a popular choice for commuters locally.”

Kevin Orr, CEO of Liftango, commented, “We are delighted to be part of this milestone project in the Solent region. Since 2015, our mission has been to unlock all of the good that comes from shared transport, and enabling convenient and environmentally-conscious commutes is testament to this.

“The Solent car share project is a fantastic example of how local businesses can unite to create a larger, more effective force for good.This cooperative action allows businesses to make a bigger impact within their communities, and ultimately meet their net zero commitments more quickly.”
