How Do Car Clubs Work?

7:30pm Wednesday 22nd September

A Commonwheels car will be parked in front of the Corn Exchange while inside Oxcars’ Cliff Jordan will explain the advantages of the scheme and answer questions.

From a fledgling fleet of two in 2008 Oxcars will have sixteen cars this summer, in bays across East Oxford, Headington and Iffley.

None of the expense or hassle of ownership: “Commonwheels provides a fleet of cars (taxed, insured, cleaned and serviced) in marked bays in local streets. Anyone over 18, who’s held a licence for at least 12 months and has no more than 6 points, is welcome to join.”

You could also make significant savings by leasing a car to the car club. Commonwheels takes on the responsibility and costs of the car – Tax, MOT, insurance, servicing.

“A few of us in East Oxford were keen to find a local project that was both achievable and would have a real impact on carbon emissions.  Together with a few people from Transition Oxford we decided to bring a car club to our city.”
