Driven hits the road with all-electric fleet

The UK's first all-electric airport shuttle service, Driven, has commenced operations using a fleet of Tesla Model X SUVs.

It offers a door-to-door service either with exclusive use of the car or as a shared service and rates start from £9 per person for a 40-minute trip.

The company says it is aiming to ‘take cars to airports off the road, replacing them with zero emission shuttles’.

Driven is targeting both the leisure and corporate market and, for the latter, has developed a travel management application that enables companies to book trips and track activity and costs. The tool also provides detailed reporting and highlights potential savings.

All drivers are employed by Driven and the 24/7 operation serves all locations within three hours of all major UK airports.

“We’re on a mission to change the way people travel to and from airports, by delivering journeys that are sustainable, affordable and enjoyable,” says Mark Long, CEO at Driven.

“With Driven, you can share your ride or go exclusive and we serve most major UK airports.”
