The Fixed Point Car Sharing Club Services
contract, provided by Zipcar (UK) Ltd, provides 185 vehicles,
operating from dedicated car club bays, for hire by residents and
businesses who are signed up to the scheme as an alternative to
private vehicle ownership. The proposal is to extend the contract
by 2 years. The provision of the service will remain the same,
other than the contract expiry date.
2.1 That the Cabinet Member for Environment and City Highways approved the extension of the contract for Fixed Point car sharing (Lot 1) for 1 year with no change to the terms of contract.
2.2 That the Cabinet for Environment and City Highways approved the extension of the contract for Flexible car sharing (Lot 2) for 1 year and the variation of the contract to increase, from 90 to 135, the maximum number of vehicles allowed to operate in the City.
3. Reasons for Decision
3.1 The extension of the service by one year will allow sufficient time to procure a broad service incorporating three models of car sharing. This will serve to increase the number of available vehicles to residents, introduce competition to the market and meet the financial shortfall generated by the departure of Drive Now from the UK market.
