Royal Borough of Greenwich implements car club
Recently acquired by Enterprise Rent-A-Car, City Car Club will initially operate 27 vehicles from parking bays across the borough with 25 cars and two vans, with plans to expand its presence in the coming months.
City Car Club was appointed after a competitive tender process and will replace the incumbent supplier as the borough’s sole car sharing provider.
Members of the Royal Borough of Greenwich’s previous car sharing provider will receive free membership to City Car Club for three years following the appointment.
Councillor Danny Thorpe, Royal Borough of Greenwich cabinet member for regeneration and transport, said: “We were one of the first boroughs to offer a car sharing service and we want to continue to encourage as much uptake as possible. Joining a car club is a great way of saving on the costs of car ownership and is more environmentally friendly.
“Car clubs form an important strand of our efforts to encourage people to look at the whole range of transport options open to them – be it walking, cycling, using public transport, or when needing to use a car, considering whether a car club would suit them. There are huge benefits to being in a car club so I urge residents to consider whether it would work for them.”
