Car2Go

car2go has approached the City of Columbus and is interested in bringing a point-to-point car sharing operation to Columbus. Car2Go representatives Josh Moskowitz and Jay Perrett will provide a presentation on their business and proposal at our Harrison West Society meeting on May 15. We will then have an opportunity to share our feedback with the City. Harrison West residents are encouraged to attend and provide any feedback and ask any questions they may have about the car sharing program.

About car2go

A wholly owned subsidiary of Daimler, car2go offers an innovative mobility solution redefining individual transportation in rapidly growing urban areas by offering a network of several hundred environment-friendly smart vehicles for rent. It provides an innovative mode of “on-demand” transportation, which complements existing public transportation alternatives by bridging the gaps commonly associated with the “first and last mile” of a public transit commute.

car2go provides unmatched flexibility and convenience with a free-floating network of cars that are available on-demand for point-to-point trips. Members have unlimited access to car2go 24 hours a day, seven days a week; they can use car2go with or without a reservation, for as long as they would like, without having to commit to a mandatory return time or location.

Members will be able to locate a car via a smartphone app, via the car2go vehicle finder on the car2go website, by calling the customer call center, or simply by finding an available car on the street.

When the member is finished using the vehicle, he or she can park at any city non-restricted metered or un-metered spaces with time limits of two hours or greater, or on-street in any residential neighborhood within the car2go Home Area. Parking, fuel, insurance and maintenance are included at no additional cost. Members can use car2go by the minute, and they pay only for the time they use the vehicle, with discounted rates for hourly and daily use.

car2go is currently operational in 17 cities worldwide: Austin, Texas; Vancouver, British Columbia; San Diego, California; Washington, D.C.; Portland, Oregon; Toronto, Ontario; Calgary, Alberta; Miami, Florida; Ulm, Germany; Hamburg, Germany; Amsterdam, Netherlands; Vienna, Austria; Dusseldorf, Germany; Berlin, Germany; Stuttgart, Germany; Cologne, Germany and London (UK).
