Car2go Carsharing Program Opens In London
December 22nd, 2012 by James Ayre
Car2go has opened up its first carsharing service in the UK, in London. (Note: it’s called a car club there.) The program will rent the Smart ForTwo cars for 35 pence (56 cents) a minute.
“The free-floating carsharing service is already in operation in the 17th city worldwide and prices in London will be a bit higher than other places: 35 pence (about 56 US cents) a minute,” AutoBlog Green writes.
Until the end of the year, you can register for free: online, at BOXPARK Shoreditch, or at Europcar stores within London. Doing so will get you a half hour of free driving time credits.
“Car2go says other cities and towns in Great Britain will get carsharing fleets soon. It’s no surprise that expansion is in the works, since the current rental rate is one every four seconds, Car2go says, averaged from all locations around the world. Details on how the system work can be found below.”
