More needs to be done to promote electric car clubs

Caroline Pidgeon has raised concerns with the Mayor over the lack of availability of shared electric cars, which has contributed to London's poor rating for "clean transport" compared to many other European cities.

Caroline said:

The Mayor must do more to promote the use of electric car clubs in order to improve London's zero-emission mobility and to prevent further car club operators from leaving the market.

ULEZ scrappage scheme expansion is long overdue

Responding to the expansion of the ULEZ scrappage scheme, Liberal Democrat London Assembly Member and Transport Spokesperson Caroline Pidgeon AM said:

"It's about time the Mayor listened to the Liberal Democrat calls for an expanded scrappage scheme.

"Whilst we welcome the Labour Mayor at last listening, he could have saved Londoners a lot of stress and worry in the cost-of-living crisis if he had accepted our budget amendments in January and February.

Pushing for electric taxi hubs

In the London Assembly, Caroline pushed the Mayor to do more to help the taxi trade to set up Electric Vehicle taxi hubs at stations and rest/refreshment ranks – an issue that Caroline had previously raised a year ago, supporting London Cab Drivers Club. The Mayor agreed to help break through the bureaucracy standing in the way of this.
