GoSmart expands into Dalbeattie and Kirkcudbright
GoSmart is rolling out to the rest of Dumfries and Galloway starting in Dalbeattie and Kirkcudbright. Through our experience in Dumfries we are tailoring our service to the individual locations working with the local community and partner organisations. In the first instance we have produced Active travel mapping of Dalbeattie and Kirkcudbright which can be found below.
Car Club operator Co-Wheels will be officially launched in Dumfries on Tuesday 20th November 2012, with six vehicles available for public hire.
