There are now nearly 150,000 members of car clubs across the UK with cities, towns and even villages realising the cost, environmental and convenience benefits they offer. Car clubs provide the convenience and cost saving of being able to use cars based in neighbourhoods. They also offer strong savings on carbon through reduced car ownership and promotion of sustainable travel.
Go! Co-operative is a Multistakeholder Co-operative (Somerset Rules), registered under the Industrial and Provident Societies Acts. This co-operative aims to improve access to public transport by providing open access rail services linking main lines to smaller market towns. Where feasible, it aims to provide light rail or bus links or develop car pools to enable outlying communities to access these services.
