Ubeeqo launches across south London
Ubeeqo, the innovative mobility start-up that delivers transport options for Londoners, has launched its new car club service called Matcha across Wandsworth.
Matcha will provide local people even better access to pay-as-you-go vehicles and has 29 new cars in the borough, with plans to increase the local fleet over the course of the year.
The cars can be picked up from on-street locations in Tooting, Battersea, Roehampton, Putney, Southfields, Earlsfield and Wandsworth Common.
Subscribers can hire the vehicles by the hour and bookings can be made via an easy-to-use mobile phone app.
It is simple to register either on the Ubeeqo website or by downloading the app which is free of charge and with no usage commitment.
All bookings include the first 50 miles and fuel for free.
Wandsworth Council has been supporting the growth of car clubs for the last eight years by providing dedicated on-street parking bays across the borough.
The borough has the highest car club membership in London, helping many households to reduce the number of cars they own privately and freeing up parking spaces.
Car clubs also reduce overall driving rates, easing congestion and improving air quality.
Benoit Chatelier, Ubeeqo founder, said: “Ubeeqo makes urban mobility easier, more convenient, and more cost-effective, and more environmentally friendly too.”
Ubeeqo, is an innovative mobility start-up in which Europcar took a majority share in 2015.
They are simultaneously launching their service in Paris and London.
