Booking transport for UWE business
Information on booking the UWE pool car and other vehicles.
UWE pool car network
In partnership with Co-Wheels, a car club scheme has been introduced for all UWE staff for both business and private use.
There are three cars at Frenchay Campus including two electric Mitsibushi iMievs and a Toyota Yaris hybrid. The cars are based at the East Reception Gatehouse and the BRL car park at the rear of The Students' Union.
The cars are available for business use only Monday to Friday 09:00 - 17:00 and private use outside of those times.
If you have any questions visit our pool car FAQs.
How to book the cars
In order to use the pool cars, you will need to join the Co-Wheels scheme. To do this please email email@example.com requesting membership. Once we have confirmed your eligibility you will receive an email invite with a link to register your details.
For longer journeys or for transporting additional people or equipment, we also have a larger five seat hybrid Mitsubishi Outlander. This car is not on the Co-Wheels network and is based at Building 650 on the Bristol Business Park. To check availability and book the car contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Electric pool bikes
Electric pool bikes are available to staff for business travel during the day. There are two e-bikes at Glenside Campus reception and two at the Frenchay Campus Travel Information Point. To borrow a bike on the day just drop-in, or to book in advance or arrange a longer hire period email email@example.com or contact James Morvan on +44 (0)117 32 87154.
