CoMoUK has funding to offer micro-grants of up to £2,500, to established Scottish community groups setting-up a new shared transport scheme – either bike, car or ride share.

The aim of the fund is to support organisations to set up the sharing of assets. It has been identified there are various funding streams available for cars and bikes, but setting up the sharing element of these is not always included.

Micro-grants can only be used to help set up new schemes. The grant must be used to help facilitate the sharing of assets, this includes, but is not limited to, the following examples:

  • Specific equipment to facilitate the sharing aspect of the scheme – for example software or a peer-to-peer carsharing platform.
  • Examples for bike share projects include software or equipment that helps with the actual sharing of the project – e.g., subscriptions to smart phone sharing apps, online booking platform and trackers

If you are applying for funding for the above, you can also apply for funding to cover certain aspects of promoting the new scheme, for example:

  • Promotional materials to help brand and advertise the scheme
  • Livery costs

CoMoUK will assess applications on a case-by-case basis, so if your idea isn’t listed above, get in touch to discuss your proposal. Full details on CoMoUk's website.
