Car Sharing

More information available here: Getting here

The University is committed to the philosophy of car sharing in the interest of reducing carbon emissions and demand for car parking space. It therefore encourages staff and students to car share journeys to and from the Stirling campus. Car sharing has the added benefit of reducing motoring costs for participants.

The Liftshare scheme to which the University subscribes, can help put drivers in contact with others who wish to use the same route. More information here:

Designated car-share spaces for those staff/student drivers carrying 2 or more people are located in close proximity to main building entrances, there are 20 such spaces within the following car parks:

  • Cottrell Main (‘Y’ Entrance)
  • Logie
  • RG Bomont
  • Pathfoot  (Front Entrance)
  • Pathfoot (Rear Entrance)

These spaces are reserved for car sharers from 9am-10:30am, Monday-Friday or as may be varied from time to time and advertised accordingly.


How does the University car share space scheme work?

Whether or not they already have an informal car share relationship with another driver, staff and students are firstly encouraged to register their details on the Liftshare website: Liftshare

Cars wishing to park in these spaces need to be carrying 2 or more people and to display 2 or more valid parking permits Standard or Pay-as-you-go (together with a valid Pay & Display ticket).  These permits and Pay & Display tickets, as applicable, should be displayed clearly on the dashboard or windscreen of the relevant vehicle occupying a dedicated car share space. Outwith the advertised time restrictions (9am-5pm, Monday to Friday) other car park users are entitled to use these spaces provided they display either a valid parking permit or pay and display ticket.

University security staff will be monitoring the use of these spaces as part of their regular patrols to ensure that car sharers have the best opportunity of securing a reserved space within operational times. Any breach in the terms and conditions of use, may result in the suspension or withdrawal of permit rights.
