Welcome to the SACT Car Club web page, we are an exciting project launched in August 2019 at the John Pollock Centre Ayr. The need for low cost car transportation in the KA8 area of Ayr was highlighted in the Tandem Report which called for smaller, lower cost vehicles for hire.

As a direct result of the Tandem report SACT Car Club applied for, and  received, funding from Scottish Power Energy Network to purchase two electric cars to provide the transportation . The low running cost and the ability to run the cars without  Co2 emissions were the deciding factors in the club purchasing two Nissan Leaf electric vehicles. This means we are playing our part to help Scotland become one of the leaders in the reduction of C02 into the atmosphere. Further to that, we were kindly granted one 7 seat Nissan eNV200 which is located for use from our Girvan depot. Costs for all the vehicles can be found on our tariffs page.
