Our community car club, Co-wheels Birmingham, is expanding! We’d like to park our next car in the Kings Heath area…
…so we are looking for a good spot to park it.

Green Revolutions starting up soon in Stirchley – we have our first car!

For when you want to transport your family, or your shopping, or for longer trips, Green Revolutions have a car for you! We welcome families, so you can move your children – and their stuff – without hassle or expense. We can even provide baby/child seats.
Our first car is a Volkswagen Passat Estate, “Katie”, with plenty of space inside and an efficient Start-Stop engine.
Katie will cost about £5 per hour (works out at 8.5p per minute). You will be able to book her in advance and you won’t have to go looking for her. You’ll be able to keep your car with you for the return journey! If it makes things easier, we can drop her off at your home.
Watch this space for details of how and when you can start driving with a Green conscience.

New 2-seater car club launches in Brum

Over 100 Smartfortwo cars have popped up across Birmingham today for the launch of the Car2go ‘drive on demand’ car club.
You don’t book a car, but instead you go online on your PC or smartphone to find your nearest car, unlock it with your membership card, and then your booking has begun!
Use for short, one-way trips within the ‘home area’, for 1 or 2 people, without much luggage. Costs £29.90 to register (free if you do it before the end of May).
Car use costs 35p per minute (£14.90 per hour).
What do you think? Would you use it?
