a sustainable transport solution

A large proportion of your future residents may have a private vehicle but may not really need one, often commuting to work using public transport and just having a car for occasional use. A relationship with the world's largest car club would assist in reducing the carbon footprint of residents whilst providing a convenient and easy-to-use service that is not only environmentally friendly but also much more economical than a privately owned vehicle!
 
Zipcar is a service that benefits the whole community by encouraging members to think harder about their transport options. On average, a Zipcar member drives 409 miles per year and makes better use of the public transport that is available to them in their local area.
 
Car club vehicles are typically between 10% and 33% more efficient than private vehicles when it comes to carbon dioxide emissions per kilometre travelled. Vehicles are constantly monitored and upgraded to ensure that the most efficient vehicles are on the road.
