Go low-carbon: Huntly Green Travel Hub
Since 2015, Huntly Green Travel Hub has been helping the community find alternative travel options to private cars. The initiative has lots of strands. Two of the most popular are, firstly, the Co-Wheels car club, which rents out new electric/hybrid vehicles to local residents by the hour, bookable online. Secondly, a fleet of e-bikes, great for people who are recovering from illness or find cycling too much of a challenge. There’s been a fantastic uptake – with people saving money, getting fitter and reducing carbon emissions.
The Green Travel Hub is run by Huntly and District Development Trust; visit their website for the story of how they went about it. You can contact them directly via email: HDDT@huntly.net. Funding came from the Climate Challenge Fund and Paths for All’s Smarter Choices, Smarter Places fund.
