|Electric Car Club Launches in H&F this Month|
Hire scheme will be run in similar way to Santander Cycles
An electric hire car club similar to the Santander Cycle scheme is launching this month in Hammersmith and Fulham.
H&F Council says the ground-breaking new electric car hire scheme will allow residents to make greener journeys around and out of the borough.
It also says that the new car club will help in the fight to reduce dangerous air pollution.
H&F will be the first council in London to launch the car club, which will use the council’s existing network of 43 electric vehicle charging points in 14 locations across the borough.
The 'Blue City' car club will be provided by Source London, who already supply and oversee H&F’s charging points and will initially launch with five cars, which will expand to around 25 by Spring 2017.
Users will be able to book a vehicle for a 30-minute period and can leave it in any charging bay in any of the 20 London boroughs who are signed up to Source London.
The existing car club scheme operating in H&F for non-electric vehicles will also soon be expanding.
This will help boost sustainable transport use by
"This new car club is another innovative way we are fighting to reduce pollution and make H&F the greenest borough in the country," says Cllr Wesley Harcourt, H&F Cabinet Member for Environment, Transport and Residents’ Services.
" We already have a growing network of charging points and aim to have expanded this to 100 by next Easter, including some rapid-charging points to make the experience quicker and easier."
