The life of a City Car Club car http://www.citycarclub.co.uk/blog/2015/08/the-life-of-a-city-car-club-car http://www.citycarclub.co.uk/blog/2015/08/the-life-of-a-city-car-club-car#comments Wed, 26 Aug 2015 15:08:20 +0000 http://www.citycarclub.co.uk/?p=12459 Read More »]]> Hear about the story of our little Hybrid Yaris’ adventures!iStock_000006547957XSmall

YA12 OZM has been on the fleet for 3 years now and is about to be retired to greener pastures of tarmac and all the fuel that the little guy can drink. He wanted to tell you his story…

“I started my CCC life at Samuel Ogden Street in Manchester on 25th July 2012.  I stayed there until January 2013 when I moved to Nunnery Lane car park in York.
In my three years I have been booked 1,432 times, driven 22,045 miles for 5,709 hours.  267 people have driven me. I’ve helped York Council members get to their meetings on time, and I’ve been all over the country on adventures. I’ve helped to reduce congestion in the UK, as for every car club car that’s provided, 9 privately owned vehicles are taken off the road!
Today I retired from the CCC fleet.  Bye bye :( and thanks for having me.” 

We’ll miss you!

Every three years we ensure that we replace older cars with newer models, in order to keep our cars up to date and for health and safety reasons. Keep watching this space for an announcement on a new car soon to be introduced (or maybe reintroduced?) to our fleet family… IMG_5519 2
