The Association secured funding for the project through the Scottish Government’s Plugged-in Households Scheme which aims to support the adoption of less polluting forms of transport, reduce the financial burden of car ownership and encourage greener travel. The zero emission car club vehicles are available for use by tenants and the wider local community 24 hours a day.

What is a Car Club?

A car club provides shared access to one or more vehicles as an alternative to private car ownership.
This provides:

  • Affordable access to zero-emission vehicles to households across Scotland, including those without allocated off-street parking.
  • A viable alternative to owning a vehicle for people who only need one occasionally.
  • Access to alternative transport options for people who don't have their own vehicle.
  • An opportunity to experience electric vehicles regardless of income or location.

How Does it work?

The first six vehicles will be located in Cardenden, Lochgelly and Dunfermline and we are offering every tenant free membership with the first 50 applicants receiving £50.00 worth of free car usage on their account to give everyone the opportunity to try out the system and the vehicles.

How Do I Sign Up?

You can sign up online at www.enterprisecarclub.co.uk/OREVALLEY or via the Enterprise Car Club app using the promotional code: OREVALLEY

The advantages of going electric.

Our new Car Club builds on our previous sustainable transport projects including the addition of two electric vehicles to our fleet and the installation of the first public electric vehicle charging points in Cardenden and Lochgelly.

  • Zero Emissions - Having a fully electric engine means these vehicles don't produce any exhaust emissions!
  • Quieter Drive - Electric vehicles are so quiet that you wont even realise the ignition is on! Don't worry though, they automatically emit a sound when travelling at low speeds to alert pedestrians.
  • Fun and Easy - Electric vehicles are the perfect city car; quick off the mark and easy to manoeuvre.
  • Cost Effective - With our Car Club you only pay for the time and distance you actually need a vehicle for, meaning you have all the convenience of a vehicle, without the hassle and expense of owning one.

 

Ore Valley Car Club

We will be hosting events on Thursday the 3rd of October for anyone interested in finding out more about the car club. Members of the Ore Valley and Enterprise teams will be on hand at Ore Valley head office in Cardenden from 10am to 12pm and from 1pm to 3pm at the business centre in Lochgelly to showcase the vehicles and the booking system. Feel free to come along!!!
