Mobility credits initiative in Coventry shows new face of scrappage schemes

By / 2 months ago / Latest News / No Comments

A UK-first mobility credits trial has gone live in Coventry, enabling drivers to give up their older, more polluting cars in return for credits.

Enterprise Car Club has placed 10 cars across the city, including in the five wards where the trial is taking place

The scheme is being run by Transport for West Midlands (TfWM) and Coventry City Council with residents and council employees and provides participants with a range of integrated, sustainable and active travel options, including cycle hire, public transport, car club and car rental.

The scheme is being supported by Enterprise Car Club, which has placed 10 cars across the city, including in the five wards where the trial is taking place. Drivers taking part in the initiative will be able to use their credits to book one of these low-emission shared cars near to where they live or work, or to access Enterprise’s rental vehicles.

John Seddon, head of transport and innovation at Coventry City Council, said: “We believe that giving people easy access to low-emission vehicles near to where they live, and work will help to promote integrated transport solutions in Coventry.”
