Join the (electric car) club
We know that riding a bike or using public transport may not be right for every journey. If you don’t have access to a car but need to go further afield from time to time, and don’t fancy the expense and inflexibility of standard car rental, joining an electric car club is the smart thing to do. We’ve teamed up with Enterprise, so you’ll be able pick up an electric car from one of our eHUBS.
You can join the Enterprise Car Club now to use eHUBS electric cars available at our four locations listed below:
Provis Road, Chorlton - M21 9EW
East Didsbury Metrolink – M19 1TB
Fairfax Road, Prestwich - M25 1AS
Market Street, Bury – BL9 0BL
You’ll just need to make a reservation on the Enterprise app, online or by phone. You can book well in advance or at the last minute. Either way, you’ll be on the road in no time. When you’re done, drop it off at the eHUB where you picked it up!
For more information on the Enterprise Car Club, and a map showing where you can hire cars in Greater Manchester, visit the Manchester Car Club page.
Joining the Enterprise Car Club with the eHUBS promo code – MANEVHUB – will give you a first year’s membership for free (usually £10) and a £10 free driving credit.
Around a third of households in Greater Manchester don’t have a car, and there are times when those that do find that it’s ‘double-booked’. The RAC Foundation also estimates that cars are only driven for one hour a day on average.
As an alternative to a private car, and for short and longer journeys such as the weekly big shop, meeting friends locally or a day out with the family off the beaten track, eHUBS may be the answer.
The eHUBS project was a year-long pilot, giving people in parts of Greater Manchester innovative electric alternatives to private cars, helping people make more sustainable travel choices. Funded by Interreg North-West Europe, eHUBS have shown how electric cargo bikes and car clubs can help keep Greater Manchester moving safely and sustainably.
The electric cargo bikes element of the trial has now ended. Click here to find more information on electric cargo bikes schemes available in Greater Manchester.
