Co Cars

Co CarsCo Cars are located in cities and towns across the South West of England. An online booking system enables you to book a car from your PC, tablet or smartphone. You pay an hourly hire fee plus a mileage rate and all the fuel, insurance, breakdown cover, tax and maintenance costs are then covered. There are already cars in Truro and Falmouth and we're hoping to get some in Penzance as well.

Eco Drive

Eco-drive was formed to give people the choice of using Electric Vehicles. Electric vehicless are often a viable alternative for many private motorists and commercial operations but have been under-promoted in the UK. Eco-drive is not 'pro-car' but they are being realistic. People will continue to use cars so where possible these should have as low an impact as possible. The key is safe, reliable and convenient recharging. Charging Stations for EVs are the equivalent of filling station fuel pumps for conventional vehicles. Usually these will be used at the vehicle's normal 'home' or base, but may be in other locations. Eco-drive is partnering with Cornwall Council for Cornwall to become one of the UK's first 'Plugged In Places'. The aim is to provide a network of around 400 charging stations across Cornwall for, initially, a public sector fleet and subsequently private users and tourists.

Car Share Cornwall - LiftShare

Cornwall Council has worked in partnership with other local authorities and the national LiftShare organisation. It aims to maximise people's travel options whilst also reducing the number of cars on the roads. The website is designed to assist you in contacting potential lift-sharing partners and gives you the ability to limit your search according to your own requirements. It allows people to benefit from the convenience of the car, whilst alleviating the associated problems of cost, congestion and pollution. If you have specific requirements, such as, only wishing to travel with a member of the same sex you can limit your search that way. You may also wish to use it as a member of a private group or public group. This way you can restrict your search to fellow members of your group or those linked to it.
