Community car share scheme launched

THE Southwest’s leading shared mobility organisation, Co Cars, launched its electric car club in Bude on Friday, November 12.

This has been thanks to Community Infrastructure Levy funding from Cornwall Council and the support of Bude-Stratton Town Council, Bude Coastal Community Team CIC, and the local community. This is the first on demand shared electric car scheme of its kind in Cornwall.

The two electric Renault Zoe cars with dual charging points are located at the Parkhouse Centre town council car park and are available to use by residents (and visitors) who sign up to the scheme.
