Bristol, United Kingdom
Co-wheels is the only independently-owned national car club, providing low emission, hybrid and electric cars on a pay-as-you-go basis for organisations and communities across the UK.
Co-wheels now deliver car clubs in over 60 locations across the UK. They have a diverse range of operations, from city centres to villages. Some of their car clubs are used by local authorities and universities as pool cars for staff, whilst others focus entirely on being shared cars for local residents.
Responsibility and involvement in REPLICATE
Co-wheels are involved in the Bristol Pilot and are mainly responsible for deploying e-bikes and EV cars in a car club.
Co-wheels are leading two mobility actions.
- EV car club: electric cars – Renault Zoes – which will be deployed in the Ashley, Easton and Lawrence Hill area as part of the Co-wheels car club and accessible to the public, tourists and businesses / organisations.
- E-bikes: e-bikes will be deployed in the Ashley, Easton and Lawrence Hill area as part of the Co-wheels car club; primarily designed to be available for public sector and private sector organisations to facilitate journeys made during the working day, it is envisaged that this will evolve to become a public facing bike share scheme. The bikes are power assisted which means it will make it easier for people who may not usually cycle to get involved.
