Our mission is to provide low carbon, on demand, affordable shared mobility for all.
Our vision is to create greener, calmer and more connected places where people thrive
Co Cars has been in the business of shared mobility since 2005 when we started with a Big Lottery Grant and a single car.
Since then, we have grown to a fleet of nearly 40 on-street hybrid and electric cars that stretches from Salisbury to Falmouth, making us the largest UK car club west of Bristol. Cars are located in dedicated parking bays and Co Cars members can use any car in our network. In Exeter, we also operate Co Bikes docked, on-street electric bike hire network.
Our longevity and experience have enabled us to build lasting, trusted relationships with our stakeholders and and our members. This creates a real sense of community ownership of our cars and bikes.
We work in close partnership with organisations across the South West that include local authorities, housing developers, private businesses and public transport operators. This means we can locate our cars where they are most needed – for example in a city centre, at a train station or in a new housing development where they are used by a wide range of people including residents, businesses and local authorities.
