Streetcar is the official car club for Bridgestone Eco-Rally 2010. They have cars parked in a dense network of dedicated spaces across London and several other UK cities, typically within a few minutes walk of your home or work. You can use one for as little as 30 minutes or as long as 6 months.
They are reserved online or by phone, and can be collected and returned 24/7 using one of our high-tech smartcards. Their fleet includes the highly popular VW Polo Bluemotion (featured in Eco-Rally 2009) and the World Green Car of the Year 2008: The BMW 118d. They also have vans if you need to move bulkier items, and 7-seaters when you need a few more seats.
The cost of your usage is based on how long you have the car and how far you drive but unless you're a heavy car user, the annual cost of Streetcar will be dramatically less than owning a car and with lots of the hassle of car ownership removed.

Every Streetcar on the road replaces, on average 26 privately-owned cars. This is because new members often sell their own car or choose not to buy one.
