Drivers are being urged to sign up for a new lift sharing website to help flood victims in Queensland, NSW and Victoria.

The website, www.FPcarshare.com.au, is a free service designed to help people who have lost their vehicle in the floods find a lift and get mobile again.

Created by leading fleet solutions company FleetPartners, www.FPcarshare.com.au is a practical response to the flood relief effort.

“Major flooding in parts of Queensland, NSW and Victoria has left thousands of people without transport,” said FleetPartners CEO Nick Johnson.

“FPcarshare.com.au is a simple way of bringing people together to share transport and get flood-affected towns moving again.

Mr Johnson said he hoped the website would be a useful tool for communities around the country.

“If you live in or near a flood affected area and wish to lift share, it is as simple as registering on the website. There’s no obligation and you are free to lift share when it suits you.

“This is a small way we can show our support for flood affected Australians who have lost their cars, reduce traffic on damaged roads and assist communities in the recovery effort.

Hundreds of thousands of Australians have been displaced since flooding began late last year, with the recovery and rebuild effort expected to take several years in the hardest hit areas.
