Chelsea Football Club has teamed up with a fans group to establish a Lift Share Scheme for supporters.
Set up at the request of the Chelsea Fans Environmental Committee, the scheme is designed to reduce travel costs as well as congestion and pollution. It is accessed online and enables fans travelling to home and away games to save money, as well as share lifts and their matchday experiences with fellow supporters.
