On November 18, car2go and City of San Diego announced that the car2go service is launched in the city.
This will be a new transportation option for people in San Diego. For those who still don’t know about the program or system, car2go is a different rent-a-car system. The conventional way of renting a car, like going to the rental location, booking, leaving your credit card information and returning it to the same spot is all gone, because of this system. Here, you can rent a smartfortwo just by going to a designated car2go parking spot. Customers can return it in another location with a parking spot and there is no commitment in return time of location. There’s also no need to reserve!
“car2go has set a new milestone in terms of flexible and tailor-made individual mobility. As the innovation leader in the automotive industry, we strive to serve our worldwide customers not only with leading-edge technology but also with groundbreaking new concepts,” said Thomas Weber, the Daimler Board of Management member responsible for research and development. He added, “Therefore, we accelerate the rollout of this cutting-edge mobility concept. Starting Nov. 18, 2011, San Diego will be part of the innovative worldwide car2go network with a fleet of emission-free smart fortwo electric drive.”
car2go is certainly revolutionizing the car sharing industry, and it’s a good thing it’s now in San Diego.
