Join the City Car Club, and you could book this car, one of two which staff at Forth Valley Royal Hospital will be able to use during and out-with working hours. The move is part of the hospital’s travel plan to encourage more people to travel to work by bus or car share, and will be particularly beneficial to staff who have to travel to the occasional business meeting.
The Car Club pilot will run for 24 months with two cars being based at the front of the hospital. During the weekday the cars are block booked (corporate booking) to NHS Forth Valley for use by staff. At the weekends and out-of-hours the cars can be booked by NHS staff but they are also available for use by local people who are members of the City Car Club.
The pilot is being supported by the City Car Club and Carplus. The City Car Club manages a fleet of 800 vehicles across 17 locations in the UK, including Edinburgh and Glasgow. The City Car Club has recently been bought by Enterprise car rental. Carplus is an environmental transport NGO and manages the Transport Scotland funded Developing Car Clubs in Scotland (DCCS) programme.
Staff who meet the eligibility criteria (driving licence, check of driving endorsements etc) are able to apply to join the Car Club as a ‘Corporate Member’. Their application will need to be supported by their Line Manager as there will be a recharge cost to the service for the use of the car.
