"Meeting discuss the plans for implementing a Car Club in Truro – 6th November
A meeting to consider the plans for a car club in Truro will take place on Tuesday 6 November at 7.30 pm at the Pearson Room, Old Bridge Street, Truro TR1 2AH.
Chas Ball, Chief Executive of Carplus, will facilitate the meeting which has been called to explore the options for implementing the car club strategy for Truro, following a successful public meeting in October. The meeting is hosted by Transition Truro.
The key points for discussion include choice of parking locations, types of vehicle, possible links to other transport modes and costs.
Run successfully in other areas of the country, car clubs give access to a shared vehicle without having to own one. Members can book a conveniently located, self-service car on the internet, or by phone and pay by the hour (or day).
