Sittingbourne Low Emissions Car Club Trial Launched by Hiyacar, in partnership with Swale Borough Council

On Monday 6 March, in part due to the success of the three year low emissions car club trial launched in Faversham in April 2022, nearby Sittingbourne will see their own hybrid car club launch, with vehicles supplied by Hiyacar, in partnership with Swale Borough Council.

Available to the general public, upon quick and free app-based sign up and verification through the Hiyacar app, is the opportunity to rent 3 hybrid vehicles, located across the town, for as little as £3 an hour.

The hybrid vehicles featured in this soon-to-launch trial will be available for hire from locations across the town, in Spring Street car park, Bell Road car park and Albany Road car park.

Hiyacar are thrilled with the success of the previously-launched, still underway Faversham low emissions car club trial, and excited to facilitate yet more residents of Swale with affordable and easy access to low emissions vehicles.

Graeme Risby, CEO and Co-Founder of Hiyacar said of the launch of this car club trial:

“We’re thrilled to be working with Swale Borough Council again, to launch another low emission car club. It’s great to see the continued success of the Faversham car club trial, and we’re excited to be offering yet more Swale residents affordable access to these vehicles."

Cllr Julian Saunders, chair of Swale Borough Council’s environment committee, said:

“After the success of the first car club in Faversham last year, it’s great to be extending the trial to Sittingbourne. We are excited to be rolling this trial out further around the borough as a way to try and encourage alternative travel. The car club offers users an affordable, pay as you go alternative to car ownership, and has been shown to improve air quality and encourages more walking and cycling.”

Booking and using the Swale Car Club cars follows the same hassle-free process as booking a regular Hiyacar, it couldn't be easier. Rent them from as little as £3 an hour or £35 a day. The rental price of which will also include insurance, car cleaning and maintenance.
