Car clubs in London

Over the past six years, we have supported the delivery of car clubs in London.

Background

Car clubs arrived in London in 2003, promoted by a consortium of boroughs, led by Camden, Islington, Kensington & Chelsea and Ealing. Since 2007, Carplus has worked with Transport for London (TfL) to deliver the Mayor’s Car Club Strategy for London (TfL, 2008), which we helped to develop.

Since 2014, we have been part of the Car Club Coalition which represents car club operators, London Councils, the Greater London Authority (GLA), Transport for London (TfL), The BVRLA and other key stakeholders. The Coalition has developed a Car Club Strategy for London which sets out the actions required to achieve the target of one million car club members in London by 2025.

The Car Club Strategy will also help to address a number of challenges faced by London in the coming years, including population growth, congestion and environmental issues.
