Car Share

Milton Keynes Council Car Share, the UK’s most successful car sharing scheme, is a parking permit suitable for employees of Central Milton Keynes who choose to share a vehicle for their journey to work.

Join the Milton Keynes car share permit scheme just £130 a year per person (£65 per person for a 6 month permit) from 1 April 2018 to receive the following benefits:

  • Parking in all standard rate spaces and over 350 reserved car share bays in prime locations
  • Reduced fuel bills and wear and tear on your vehicle
  • Company on your journey to work - get to know colleagues and people in your local area
  • Reduced carbon footprint, congestion and improved journey times

The scheme is easy to join and suitable for employees of Central Milton Keynes who choose to share a vehicle for their journey to work with at least one other person. If you don't know of anyone suitable to car share with, we might even be able to help you find someone.

A lead applicant must be nominated to submit one application form and £130 payments on behalf of each applicant. Please note we now also offer the option to purchase the permit for six months at a cost of £65 each applicant.  After eligibility checks have been completed, the parking permit will be approved and once the payment has been accepted you will be advised that the permit is active. It is the main applicant's responsibility to ensure that they log into their account to select the correct vehicle they are parking with the permit.

Each month, car sharers across Milton Keynes save the equivalent of a tanker load of fuel, that's around £24,000 each and every month! Your own commuting costs could fall by at least 50% - what will you do with your savings?

How To Apply

If you’d like to save a few litres of energy (not to mention the money!), please read the Guidance Notes (PDF, 170KB) and register for an account to apply for a permit.
