FEET or Fintry Energy Efficient Transport is Fintry’s community car club. FEET was launched in June 2011 as mechanism of sustainable rural transport. Fintry has had no form of public transport for over ten years and as a result many households are two car families, the average is 1.4 cars. FEET provides these Fintry families the option to give up their unnecessary secondary car or even primary car in replacement for FEET membership and car usage.
Why join a FEET?
FEET can directly offer its members a range of benefits which are only available with car club membership. Members can give up the hassle associated with owning a car; they no longer have to worry about expensive car garage bills and maintenance, they are free from constrains of car tax and high insurance costs. Members are even protected against the rising costs of fuel as each car is equipped with a fuel card – instead members pay a mileage cost. To top all these great benefits off members are even helping the environment by directly reducing their transport CO2 emissions.
