BVRLA welcome government's mobility strategies

The BVRLA has welcomed the government's announcement that it will provide more financial, regulatory and policy support for UK cities looking to develop their own future mobility strategies.

Responding to the publication of the government's Future of Mobility: Urban Strategy and the launch of a new £90m competition for four new 'Future Mobility Zones', bvrla director of external relations, Toby Poston highlighted the key role that the vehicle rental, car club and leasing sector will play in realising the full potential of Connected, Shared, Autonomous and Electric (CASE) vehicles.

'BVRLA members area already delivering the future of urban mobility by providing clean, flexible and affordable mobility to local businesses and residents in London, Birmingham, Manchester and every other major town and city across the UK.

'Their services integrate with other modes of transport and can play a vital role in tackling the challenges facing urban policymakers, whether it is reducing congestion and the threat of terrorism or improving air quality and road safety.'

The BVRLA has made its own contribution to this agenda by publishing its new Mobility Credits Scrappage Scheme policy paper. This makes the case for a nationally funded, locally targeted vehicle scrappage scheme that offers a mobility credit in exchange for a household scrapping its older, more polluting vehicle. This credit can be spent on more sustainable 'pay-as-you-go' private and public transport modes, including car and bike hire, car clubs, trams, buses and trains.
