University of Warwick Chooses Liftango's Global Carpool Solution

The initiative aims to improve access to shared transport, giving staff and students a sustainable way to travel to and from campus.

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.

WARWICK, UNITED KINGDOM - Strengthening their commitment to Net-Zero, the University of Warwick has added Liftango’s Climate-Positive Carpooling services to their sustainable transport initiatives.

Part of Liftango’s commitment to sustainability includes offsetting all carbon emissions from every carpool trip. 

The initiative aims to improve access to shared transport, giving staff and students a sustainable way to travel to and from campus.

Parvez Islam, University of Warwick's Director of Environmental Sustainability, said: "The partnership between the University of Warwick and Liftango allows staff and students to use a cost-effective and environmentally friendly way of getting around. It also enables the University to reduce the number of cars on-site, utilise its parking more efficiently and quantify the environmental impact."

The platform consists of a smartphone app for users to connect, and an operations portal where University administrative staff can monitor and manage the program's success.

For staff and students, it now becomes easier to connect and carpool. Carpool requests get matched in real-time, which means no more waiting around for a match, and the service is free for all users.

Carpoolers can even make private requests to friends directly, making it that much easier to find a carpool ride.

Key to the initiative's success is the inclusion of guaranteed parking for carpool users. 

David Mawhinney, Head of Liftango - Europe, said: “Carparking is a powerful incentive for people to carpool. Finding parking is troublesome at the best of times. Providing the right incentive for people whilst minimising their environmental impact is a win-win.” 

Several car park areas will have dedicated spaces for carpoolers, giving staff or students a more accessible option to find that last-minute car park.

The University of Warwick joins Liftango’s global network of climate-positive carpool partners, including organisations such as Tesla, INGKA Group, Unilever and the University of British Columbia.

About the University Of Warwick

The establishment of the University of Warwick was given approval by the government in 1961 and received its Royal Charter of Incorporation in 1965.

The idea for a university in Coventry was mooted shortly after the conclusion of the Second World War, but it was a bold and imaginative partnership of the City and the County which brought the University into being on a 400-acre site jointly granted by the two authorities. Since then, the University has incorporated the former Coventry College of Education in 1978 and has extended its land holdings by the purchase of adjoining farm land.

The University initially admitted a small intake of graduate students in 1964 and took its first 450 undergraduates in October 1965. In October 2013, the student population was over 23,000 of which 9,775 are postgraduates. Around a third of the student body comes from overseas and over 120 countries are represented on campus.
