Connect Plymouth celebrates one whole year of the scheme

In March this year Connect Plymouth celebrated one whole year of the sheme, which saw the launch of Beryl e-bikes and electric charging for vehicles in Plymouth, and an all-electric car club. Just a year after the launch and we can already see the benefits!

Beryl e-bike riders have travelled over 230,000km across the city, that’s like riding the Tour de France 66 times! Not just that, but all journeys by Beryl e-bike replaced 26% of Plymouth’s usual vehicle use, and 55% of people who used the service are now cycling more regularly.

The electric vehicle chargers provided by Wenea have been popular throughout the city delivering enough power that an average EV could drive over 415,000km, the equivalent of going around the world 10 times.

And the newly launched Co Wheels electric car club, providing access to a vehicle without the cost and burden of ownership. There is even a new joiners offer of free membership plus driving credit right now when you sign up with code ‘PLYMOUTH20’ 

Schemes like Connect Plymouth help us to make our city greener, provide more options for the way we move and can improve our health and wellbeing.
