Survey launched to gauge interest in electric bike and car use in Mendip
Mendip District Council is encouraging residents to take part in a survey, the results of which could bring an electric car and bike sharing scheme to the district for the first time. The Council wants to gauge interest in the idea of running a network of shared, low and zero-emission cars and bikes across Mendip.
Co Cars, a not-for-profit social enterprise, already operate such schemes successfully in the South West, and are the company behind the transport survey.

Cllr Simon Carswell, Portfolio Holder for Economic Development, said: "We hope residents will take part in this important survey for Mendip. A scheme like this one will help us work towards our commitment to our carbon neutral goals.
"Introducing alternative transport schemes into our local area are ways we can ensure a fairer, greener and more sustainable community for all."
