    How to simplify in the best way?

    The car was moving from the left bank to the right bank.

    Please add this name to the list of available names.

    What is the best way to get rid of repeating nouns for both singular and plural cases, keeping the sentence grammatically correct?
    I would be grateful to learn all less or more usable options.
    Thanks in advance,
    Max.

    You may sometimes replace the very noun(s) by 'one(s)'. It could likely work for the first sentence while it doesn't work fine for the second. I think there's other ways in some different situations though.
