We now have access to a co-wheels car – a hybrid, what’s more – parked at a resident’s house in Faraday Court, Sheraton Park.
This means that if you sign up on the co-wheels website you can book the car to go on trips whenever you want. Co-wheels is a UK car-sharing scheme and how much you pay to use it depends on how far you drive – it’s approx £5/hour and 18p/mile, so much cheaper & more sustainable than buying your own car. For more info, including how to register, check their website.
