Drivers in Houghton Regis and Leighton-Linslade can now access five electric vehicles and one hybrid vehicle from as little as £4 per hour or £35 per day.

Operated by Hiyacar, a new electric vehicle car club will be trialled in the area for an initial three years.

It’s being supported by the council and funded by Section 106 contributions which Central Bedfordshire Council receive from developers to offset the impact of new housing. The car club vehicles can be found on: The Farmstead, Huckett Street, Houghton Regis; Bidwell West Neighbourhood Centre, Collie Place, Houghton Regis; AW Charging Station, Kemsley Drive, Leighton Buzzard.

The launch of the club means motorists living in Leighton-Linslade and Houghton Regis will have more affordable transport options available.

Anyone who wants to use the cars can download the Hiyacar app and sign up as a Hiyacar member. The rental price will also include insurance, car cleaning and maintenance.
