Car Share

The University support car sharing as much as possible and we manage this through a company called Liftshare which enables organised car-sharing by connecting people who are going in the same direction so they can arrange to travel together and share the cost, reducing pollution and congestion at the same time!

Changes are taking place with regard to our car sharing programme, watch this space for more information.



Car Hire

Don’t have your own car but need access to one for a quick trip or to move some items?

Have a look at Enterprise Car Club which enables you to book out and use a range of different cars that can be reserved for as little as half an hour, a day, or as long as needed.

There are 35+ new hire vehicles in designated bays across the City. We have 2 Car Club vehicles (one of which is a Toyota Prius plug-in hybrid) in dedicated bays on campus (Clarendon Road – outside Leeds University Business School; and Cavendish Road – outside the Ziff Building).

Once you have registered, vehicles can be reserved online by phone or using the iphone app. Once reserved, you just head to the designated vehicle, unlock it using your membership card or app, enter your unique pin once in the vehicle to dispense the keys and drive away. Simple!

*DISCOUNTED RATES for University of Leeds staff and students!*

Enterprise offer annual membership for £10, but will give you that £10 back as driving credits towards your first journeys to get you started! To access this discounted offer, please click on the link: University Of Leeds Personal Joining Link
