New parking car clubs are short-term rental services that allow drivers to access locally parked vehicles and pay by the minute or hour. The scheme reduces the need for private parking and provides an alternative model to traditional vehicle ownership.
Co Wheels Car Club claimed the schemes had become "more popular" as a result of climate change.
They added the scheme was a "great way" for road users to reduce their climate footprint but could also provide parking benefits.
They said: "For people who don't have their own car but can drive, car clubs are a great way to access the most convenient form of transport only when you need it.
"What's more, using a car club gives you access to designated city centre parking zones, meaning you're guaranteed a parking space at no extra cost!

"These options have become more popular due to the growing climate change crisis, as they will help the UK to reach its target of net-zero emissions by 2050.
"This is a great way to reduce your personal carbon footprint if you can drive but don't own or don't need your own car.
"Sometimes, public transport isn't enough, so renting a car with a guaranteed space to get to your favourite event or go shopping is the next-best eco-friendly option."
Transport for London has confirmed the capital is "full of car clubs" for residents to enjoy.

These range from traditional returnable models to flexible one-way vehicles with dedicated parking areas.
They said the scheme has the "potential to reduce car ownership" and would "inspire" the shift away from private vehicles.
According to Brighton and Hove Council, drivers could receive penalty charges for stopping in car club bays.
This keeps the scheme exclusive for vehicle owners and ensures that everyone using the scheme can access parking at all times.
Tower Hamlets Council suggested renting vehicles from car clubs can be as cheap as £5 per hour.
This will include petrol, insurance, tax, maintenance and cleaning services.
Tower Hamlets Council said: "One car club vehicle can replace between five and ten private.
"This represents a huge benefit to the environment, air quality carbon footprint, congestion and parking.

"With fewer cars on the roads, as people share the cars, it means fewer cars competing for parking spaces in a local street.
"People who use car clubs tend to make smarter choices about their travel patterns, by using the car only when it is needed.
"The reduction in trips helps reduce congestion and pollution."
