First publishedon www.ITSInternational.com
Bluecity has launched an electric car-sharing service comprising 100 vehicles for passengers travelling to and from London's Gatwick Airport. The company says a standard journey from Central London will cost around £15 in moderate traffic.
Guy Stephenson, Gatwick Airport’s chief commercial officer, says the service also improves air quality.
Ten cars and charging points are available on Gatwick's South Terminal forecourt. Users can reserve a car via the Bluecity app.
Travellers can pick up a car at any of the London-based charging points and drop it off at the airport.
These cars are also available for local residents and Gatwick staff have been offered to trial the service for free.
The company is holding ongoing discussions with local authorities and business groups in a bid to expand the network further in London and in areas surrounding the airport.
