Co-wheels Shropshire is now a sponsor of the Ludlow Assembly Rooms. The LAR has exciting plans for next year and we're looking forward to working more closely with them. The Ludlow cars are already well-established, and advertising in the LAR brochure and on the website will help us to reach more local people and visitors to Ludlow.

You can now join Co-wheels in person at Ludlow Visitor Centre.
Anybody who visits Ludlow can join on the spot by taking their driving licence and bank details to the Visitor Information Centre in the Square on weekdays or Saturday mornings, where they will be issued with a green smart card which gives them access to drive the cars.

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, Bishop's Castle 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.
