Connect Plymouth is offering new ways for businesses and their customers to get around the city with corporate memberships available from partners. Find out more…

Connect Plymouth is a sustainable transport initiative that integrates three new components with existing public transport. As this is Plymouth, this will include the ferries as well as buses and trains.

Britain’s Ocean City will have 500 e-bikes, 300 electric vehicle charging bays and an electric car club. The locations will be spread across the city, improving access and helping to make journeys more efficient, saving money and time.

Beryl e-bikes will be located at over 90 sites spread throughout the city. The e-bikes can be picked up from one location and dropped off at another, making them a great transport option. As well as being efficient, active travel such as walking and cycling also promotes good health and wellbeing.

Beryl Partnerships Lead, Ben Lee, said: “A Beryl Corporate Membership can reduce your company’s carbon footprint, help staff get fitter and save money on fuel, as well as contributing towards reducing harmful carbon emissions and improving air quality.

“It’s easy to set up as well, no matter what size your business, as we provide the bikes, design and integrate the scheme and offer ongoing support.”

There is an opportunity to explore packages to implement docking stations in proximity to your business.

The Co Cars car club can be used by visitors and staff, providing flexible access to a vehicle without the costs and burden of owning one.

Helen Scholes, Marketing and Partnerships Manager at Co Cars said: “Co Cars can be booked by app from minutes to days. Staff only pay for the time they drive plus mileage, saving time, money and hassle compared to traditional business car hire.”

Supported by the Connect Plymouth electric vehicle charging infrastructure, Plymouth will have a fleet of electric cars available as part of the car club helping to make Plymouth’s air cleaner.

And there will be publically accessible electric vehicle charging points at 50 locations across the city, with rapid charging available, shortening vehicle charging times.
