Why do Car Clubs matter?

The number of cars in the UK has broken the 30 million barrier and is still rising. With ever tougher constraints on parking being imposed in commercial, urban and residential areas, some imaginative ways are needed to deal with them.

Car Clubs offer a pay-as-you-go alternative to car ownership by providing locally accessible vehicles for short-term hire. For local authorities and businesses Car Clubs offer a means of addressing excess parking demand and the potential to trigger greater sustainability in new developments. For local communities they provide a low-cost option to access services if public transport is unable to meet their need.

Are Car Clubs succeeding in the UK?

Car Clubs serving the UK have been on the increase in the last year or so with a handful of operators vying for markets in a number of UK towns. Department for Transport guidance* has placed ‘win-win’ initiatives such as Car Clubs right at the heart of emerging UK transport policy that aims to improve accessibility for all, while cutting congestion and improving air quality. But are Car Clubs in their current form meeting these objectives?
