Climate change and getting rid of your car

On September 20, 2019, the Global Climate Strike is set to be the biggest climate mobilisation in history, with the activists Extinction Rebellion calling on adults to join the young people.

Action is planned in over 115 countries and over 1,000 cities in the three days before the UN climate summit.

There seems to be little doubt that the situation is becoming urgent and that time is short.

With so many more people concerned about and doing their bit to help try to stop the environmental damage being done to the planet, some people are considering getting rid of their cars altogether.

Now that shopping can be done online and delivered by most of the main supermarkets you can also avoid using the car for shopping trips.

Maintaining a car can be expensive, especially when it is only in use occasionally, perhaps for driving to and from work.  One option is to car share.

But doing without a car altogether can be difficult for people living in rural areas in East Anglia, especially when public transport is in short supply or does not fit your timetable.

This can make it awkward to get to hospital and GP appointments, and other necessary visits.

However, using our services to get you where you need to go, when you need to keep appointments will still cost you less than owning, running and maintaining a vehicle, not to mention on saving on car parking charges.

So if you are wondering how you might manage to be car free, why not call on us?
