A group of five MSc Management with Project Management students have been working on a Sustainable Business Leaders Project with Bournemouth and Poole Borough Councils and the Co-wheels Car Club to improve student access to sustainable travel in the local area.
As a result of this project, Co-Wheels - who offer local residents the opportunity to only pay for a car when it's needed - are offering an exclusive offer to BU students up until the end of March. Simply use the code BUMARCH by 31 March 2018 to get a Co-wheels membership for just £1 and receive a £25 credit on your account, giving you 4 hours free use.
The benefits of a car club membership with Co-wheels include:
- Convenient access to cleaner vehicles which will contribute towards improving local air quality
- No fixed costs associated with owning a motor vehicle (tax, MOT, fuel, servicing, repairs, depreciation and parking)
- Save money; members who drive less than 6,000 - 8,000 miles per year could save up to £3,500 a year by using the car club
- Reduce the need for a second car ownership in households, freeing up more local on-street parking spaces.
