About us

Who we are

CoMoUK is the national organisation for shared transport, a charity for promoting its social, economic and environmental benefits.

Shared transport means schemes such as car clubs and bike share where people can use a mode of transport without having to own it.

We work collaboratively with national, regional, transport and local authorities as well as the private sector to further these public benefits.

We do this via research, operator accreditation, stakeholder engagement, policy work and advocacy.

CoMoUK supports the development of shared modes:

  • Car share
  • Bike share
  • E-scooter share
  • Lift share
  • Digital demand responsive transport
