Answer for Car clubs

Answered By: 
The Mayor

My draft Transport Strategy, published for consultation on 21 June, recognises the role that car clubs can play to allow people to use cars for certain trips without the need to own a car. This is part of a wider package of measures to reduce car use.

Boroughs are best placed to identify the most appropriate car club models to support their own residents and businesses, and deliver air quality and congestion benefits. TfL works closely with the car club trade bodies, car club operators and boroughs to support the joint development of best practice guidance through the London Car Club Coalition.
