Since arriving in Sutton in November 2007 as part of the council's Smarter Travel Sutton programme, Streetcar has grown to over 800 members; with a 44% increase this year alone. There are currently 18 Streetcar vehicles at 14 locations across the borough comprising a mix of new, low-carbon cars and vans.2 There are plans for at least another 10 locations to come on stream next year as well.
The service has become an increasingly popular alternative for those who need occasional use of a vehicle but do not want the costs and hassle of owning one, with people attracted to its convenience, flexibility and cost effectiveness.
Streetcar currently boasts over 1400 locations across ten cities; London, Brighton, Cambridge, Southampton, Guildford, Maidstone, Oxford, Bristol, Edinburgh and Glasgow. Members book a car online or over the phone, as little as 30 minutes ahead of time, and use remotely activated smartcards to unlock the vehicle. Thanks to Streetcar's iPhone app, members are now able to locate, book and even open a car with their phone.
