The Service

We have 6 Electric Vehicles and designated charge points in Penzance, Camborne, Falmouth, Newquay, Lanivet & Pensilva. They are now ready to be used by local groups & individuals as part of our Age UK Cornwall membership scheme. The 'Sustainable Transport in Cornwall' project was part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

"We are excited to start the Sustainable Transport in Cornwall Project, our aim is to connect local communities, increase independence and reduce social isolation using environmentally-friendly transport solutions"
