Nearly 300 people in Coventry have expressed an interest in giving up their cars in exchange for Mobility Credits.
Each can claim credits worth up to £3,000, to spend on public transport, taxis, bike share or a car club.
TfWM has also crushed 70 of the cars given up so far.
It has made £1m of Mobility Credits available, after getting £22m from the government to work on a number of pollution-tackling schemes such as on-demand buses, cycle hire and driverless cars.
It started the car-surrender scheme in March 2021 and said 71 people had been accepted by October.
The trial is due to run for two years and TfWM said it is looking for 280 participants in total.
It said the aim of the trial was “to see if mobility credits are an effective way of changing travel behaviour”.
