Flock Together saves the planet

Monday, February 4th, 2008

Just spent the last few hours trying to improve the way Flock Together handles lifts.

First of all, there’s a new page which shows all the current lifts wanted and offered at http://www.flocktogether.org.uk/showLifts.php

Once you’re logged in, you can now also email someone to request a lift or offer a lift. We’ve done this in a way which respects people’s privacy and should avoid spam.

For an example of how this works, try http://www.flocktogether.org.uk/askForLift.php?tu=mpntod&m=2818 (you may need to log in to see how this page works).

Where next?

Should we include simple lift-links in the emails we send out? Should we make it easier to add or remove lifts on meeting pages?

I’m keen for this to work because if we can get some extra car-sharing going it helps cut CO2 emissions.

And don’t forget that every page of Flock Together will also look up the best way for you to get to a meeting via public transport. Just go to any meeting page and click on ‘by public transport’ to see the best route.
