Launch of Connect Plymouth for electric car and bike hire
Connect Plymouth has now launched and will offer e-bikes and electric cars for hire around the city.
When fully operational, Beryl Bikes will have a 500-strong fleet of electric bikes for hire from over 90 sites.
There will be an additional 300 parking bays across the city with electric vehicle charge points provided by Wenea. Plymouth City Council has awarded a contract to Co Cars to run a fleet of electric car club vehicles within Plymouth.
Connect Plymouth is part of the Department of Transport’s Transforming Cities Fund, which aims to change people’s travel habits by making it as easy as possible for people to choose low carbon options to get about.
