Co-wheels Shropshire - how it works

Co-wheels is a ‘pay by the hour’ car club, with cars parked near to where people live and work. Members can access cars 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, without the cost and hassle of owning one. Cars are parked in designated parking bays and can be booked in advance or last minute; either on-line or over the phone.

Shropshire is one of a range of Co-wheels locations across the UK, from city centre to smaller community led and owned car club operations, all focused on satisfying local need.

There are six cars available in Shrewsbury and Ludlow - all are fuel-efficient Fords, of various sizes. Co-wheels members can also use any car in the Co-wheels network across the UK.  Co-wheels Shropshire is managed by a local social enterprise, Shropshire Car Club CIC, with volunteer directors and a supporters' group in each of the three towns where cars are located.

Car club cars in Ludlow

Shrewsbury

There is one car in St Julian's Friars car park - a Ford Focus saloon.

There is a Ford Fiesta at Frankwell car park

They are parked in clearly marked bays. Please do not worry about the out of date/inaccurate parking permits in these cars. New permits have been applied for for these cars and we have permission for the cars to be parked in these car parks while we wait for the new permits to arrive.

In addition, the Ford C-Max 7-seater is now parked on South Hermitage, SY3 7JT in the Belle Vue area. This does not have a marked bay.

During times of flooding in Shrewsbury we may need to move the cars around.  Contact Co-wheels by telephone for the latest information on the location of the cars. We'll also try to post news of changes on our Twitter and Facebook feeds.
