  • Carplus

    Carplus is the national charity promoting shared transport. In Scotland, we are funded by the Transport Scotland (an Executive Agency of the Scottish Government) to develop and support car clubs across the county.

    A car club is a member-based organisation that provides access to self-service, pay-as you-drive vehicles. Car clubs are an enabler of behaviour change, providing options for people who want to give up their car but still gives them access to new, fuel efficient vehicles when the journey can’t be made by walking, cycling or public transport. 

    For more information, contact scotland@carplus.org.uk or call 0131 243 2734.

  • Spokes

    Spokes is a voluntary organisation with 1200 members, mainly in Edinburgh and Lothian, aiming to promote cycling for everyday transport and to persuade councils and government to do the same, including through high quality infrastructure.

    Activities include extensive political lobbying, public meetings, traffic counts, stalls, bike rides, and bike maps (over 120,000 sold).  Our 13,000-copy Bulletin goes to 1500 decision-makers across Scotland and is free in bike shops, libraries, etc.

    Cycle use has grown from 1% of commuter trips when Spokes began to 7% now, and our counts show it continues to rise.

    One of our greatest success has been Edinburgh Council allocating 10% of its transport budget to cycling. We've been less successful with the Scottish Government, which still allocates less than 2%.  We need your support!! - join Spokes.
