Greenwich Council Car Club

Ever need to get your hands on a car for a few hours or an occasional weekend away?

Why not join the Greenwich Car Club?

What is the car club?
The car club is a pool of cars that members of the club can use.

Initially there will be 8 cars placed in the Town Centre in dedicated parking bays at four locations.

The car club will be operated by Streetcar and BioRegional in partnership with the Council.

How does it work?
When you join Streetcar you will be given a Smartcard.

You can use this card to access a pre-booked car at any time.

You can book a car over the phone or via the internet for periods of 30 minutes upwards.

How do I join?
For full details of the scheme and how to sign up, go to the Streetcar website.

That's a really great idea, I hope it goes well. I remember seeing something like this in Turin abour 10 years ago, which really impressed me. The Italian scheme used electric Fiat Pandas though, which was even better for the environment, given that most were used to drive around the city rather than for long trips.
