London’s first shared electric van business scheme launches in Brixton
Brixton’s small business community is invited to enjoy the free use of a shared electric van as part of partnership initiative that aims to tackle the area’s high pollution levels
Participating small businesses in Brixton, including street and market traders based locally, get the chance to utilise London’s first ever electric van sharing service, which will be available free of charge for eligible businesses from Monday 2nd December 2019.
Cross River Partnership’s award winning Clean Air Villages programme aims to encourage small businesses based locally in Brixton to start sharing a greener and cleaner electric van with other local businesses, all completely free of charge. Here are just some of the reasons why this is good for the area:
- Encourages businesses based locally to scrap their highly polluting vans
- Reduces number of vans on the roads generally, helping to tackle the area’s high congestion and pollution levels
- Reduces parking demand in the area
- Ensures local businesses can continue to operate in the current and expanded Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ)
