Tools and resources

Research and guidance

We produce up to date information about car clubs, car sharing, bike sharing and developments in shared mobility.

The Carplus Annual Survey is the only comprehensive national, credible research into the car club sector. It sets out the demonstrable benefits of car clubs and shared mobility in carbon reduction, increased use of public transport, improved air quality, reduced congestion and improved access to transport.

Bikeplus produces annual statistics for bike share, including the number of members, bikes and trips. In addition we produce research and guidance for the bike share sector.

This section also contains guidance, tools and resources for local authorities, businesses and communities.
