A new car club allowing Hammersmith & Fulham residents to be the first in London to drive cars with zero exhaust emissions launches next month in Lyric Square, Hammersmith.
The launch of Bluecity at H&F Council’s ‘eco fair’ will take place in Hammersmith on Monday 12 June, from 11am until 2pm.
H&F residents that sign up to Bluecity at the fair will be able to enjoy a year’s membership and 20 hours of driving – for free.
Long time borough resident Toby, from Shepherds Bush, used a Bluecity car for a recent trip to Lewisham and back. He found the experience easy and enjoyable and would encourage other residents to sign up.
“It was great, I gave up driving a car in London years ago, so it was a godsend,” he said.
“It is incredibly easy and very convenient with all the locations. It’s efficient, cheap and environmentally sound, so I’d definitely recommend it.”
H&F Council teamed up with Bluecity and charging points provider Source London, to offer more electric vehicle charging points than any other London borough.
The ‘eco fair’ will include a celebration of all the council’s environmental projects, as well as showcasing future green schemes.
What is Bluecity?
Bluecity is an electric car club where you can pick up a car from any local charging point.
H&F will have a network of 150 on-street electric vehicle charging points by the end of this summer. Car club members can pick up or leave their car at these, or those in other London boroughs.
Bluecity cars create no exhaust emissions, so you can drive around safe in the knowledge you’re not contributing to local air pollution levels as well as helping to combat climate change.
If you live and work in H&F, you can pick up a voucher with details for the offer during our eco fair on 12 June. Alternatively, you can subscribe online and use the code ‘EARLYBIRD’.
The deal entitles you to a year’s free membership (usually £5 per month) and 20 hours of driving (usually 17p per minute – minimum charge of £3.40).
Users can reserve a vehicle 30-minutes in advance and can leave it in any compatible charging bay in the 17 London boroughs who are signed up to Source London.
To subscribe, you’ll need to provide your driving licence and proof of address, or copies of these documents.
We want to make H&F a greener place to live and work and a better place for wildlife and the fair will feature a host of market stalls from Bluecity and other green organisations.
Come along and sign-up to our ground-breaking electric car club, find out about how to help bees in London, keep your fuel bills down, how to recycle more and even how to create a community garden.
