Fear of Fuel Price Hikes Spur Interest in Carsharing in Dundee, Scotland

Dundee, Scotland is trying launching a carshare service.  Following the success of programs around the world and in Edinburgh and Glasgow, Dundee is planning a carshare service to provide alternative vehicular transportation for local residents that can lead to fuel consumption and cost reductions in the future.  The service is under discussion at an event today, February 17, 2011.  Details of the event have not yet been released.  

Alistair MacLeod, from Solar Cities Scotland sees the benefits of establishing a carsharing service, "What the figures are showing with these kind of car clubs is that they reduce the amount of time people use cars and can save motorists thousands of pounds a year, and — as well as being better for the environment — it will also help in areas where they are struggling for parking spaces."
