Sustainable travel not only helps reduce carbon emissions and air pollution but can also save money and improve health.
The Council, with support from the Energy Savings Trust, has undertaken a review of its fleet to identify which petrol and diesel vehicles can be replaced with electric equivalents. A rolling programme of replacement has begun and over the coming years, we will replace as many of our cars and vans as possible. This will not only save the Council money on fuel costs but will also reduce our carbon emissions and improve air quality.
If you do need to use the car for your journey why not see if others are travelling your way with Stirling Liftshare.
Stirling Liftshare is a website that helps match you up with other people who are travelling in the same direction as you for regular or one-off journeys.
It gives you the chance to
- save money
- do your bit for the environment
- reduce congestion
- and find some friendly company for your car journeys.
Once you register yourself and a journey, Stirling Liftshare will try and find a match for you from other registered users. You then decide if you want to get in touch with someone. Your personal contact details are held securely and will not be given to any potential matches until you decide to pass them on.
It’s free and easy to register and what’s more, you don’t need your own car to join Stirling Liftshare. Many members are happy to give someone a lift in return for a contribution to the fuel costs and someone to chat to on the journey.
Stirling Car Club
Stirling Enterprise Car Club provides a convenient and economical alternative to private car ownership (or can remove the need for a second car for some households). This is completely self-service, allowing members to book a low emission car online, turn up and quickly get on the road; 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
In order to support electric car ownership, we are also increasing the number of charging points across the area. Visit Charge Your Car for more information on the public charging network.
