Driver Collect
135  Coleraine Road, Blackheath, London, SE3 7NT, UK

About us: "Driver Collect is a new searchless ride-sharing solution launched by Forward Plane Ltd which is fine tuned to cater to both ends of the market: drivers and riders. It simplifies things for both parties by constantly searching for the best available matches on any given route. The moment potential matches are found, the website clubs together the top 5 amongst them to the user’s view list. In the extremely unlikely event that the system should fail to find an immediate match, it keeps searching in the background in every 3 minutes until the issue is resolved. Currently the service is free both for drivers and users."

Zipcar

About us: "The pay-as-you-go car."

Website: http://zipcar.co.uk/london/find-cars

TTK comment: "Have tried Streetcar (Zipcar has taken over Streetcar) and was a little disappointed with the cleanliness of the car. Hoping that Zipcar has its act together as it's a great way to discourage car ownership by keeping the option open should you need it. "
