Setting up a community car club

If you can’t find a car club car near you on our map, maybe you could think about setting up your own car club?

Leaf Park 2

Carplus has supported community car clubs from the north of Scotland to the south of England. Some projects involve a large number of people, whilst some are just a group of neighbours getting together to share a vehicle.

Community car clubs can be independently run or run by working with one of the larger car club operators, such as Co-wheels, e-Car Club or City Car Club for support.

There’s a community car club forum in our members’ area for people running community car clubs. If you’re not already a member, find out more about membership.
