Car club happening in Hexham
The car club will be up and running soon. Transition Tynedale, working with the social enterprise company Co-Wheels has secured capital funding from Northumberland County Council. Two of the most environmentally friendly cars on the road will be available for car club members to book online 24/7 and drive away from designated parking bays in the Wentworth car park and the town centre. One of the cars will be an electric / diesel hybrid car and the other a regular hybrid car.
Members can join the car club for just £25.00 per year and are billed every month for their usage. Charges are by the hour with an overnight and 24 hour maximum rate. All fuel, tax, insurance and maintenance costs are covered in the car club charges. Members can also use any other Co-wheels car across the country.
