Oh ya, she told me she was seriously considering it when I was over at her place last month.

 

So Helps opines on her desire to save the environment by giving up her car for Modo, yet she has no issues with the greenhouse emissions associated with taking 50 people to China or promoting a country with an abysmal environmental record.

Victoria hotel launches car share initiative - Saanich News
Hotel guests can use all-electric vehicle during their stay for $20 per night
 
Long overdue.  It goes towards my idea of getting people to explore more and stay one or two more nights.

Wait a second...where's the other half of this car?

 

I suppose a one-seat vehicle like this could appeal to single business travelers?

^ Yup, it's design by BC's Electra Meccanica. Here's a write-up on Huff Post, which has photos from other angles: https://www.huffingt...n_11980210.html

Car2Go to shut down in Toronto, blaming new city rules

 

 

Car2Go, the prominent car-sharing company that claims 80,000 users in Toronto, will stop operations in the city on May 31, it announced Thursday in a release.

 

 

The company blames city hall, saying a new free-floating car-sharing pilot program passed by council in April after months of debate is overly restrictive and renders its service "inoperable." Specifically, it called the parking permit fees of about $1,500 per vehicle "unprecedented."

 

 

Car2Go wanted users to be able to park its 350 shared vehicles — Car2Go is well-known for its fleet of blue-and-white Smart cars and some Mercedes Benz vehicles — in residential areas.

When it launched, Car2Go vehicles parked in the city's Green P lots. However, the company then instructed its customers to park in any legal space, including in residential areas. That angered some Torontonians — especially those living in neighbourhoods where on-street parking is already scarce — as well as a number of city councillors.

Car2Go says council's new rules would put nearly 10,000 parking spaces off-limits for its customers.

 

 

In 2017, the company was ticketed for 42,595 infractions, which amounts to more than $1 million in fines. 

 

 

A lot to wade through here.  Some residents did not like the idea of these ownerless cars littering the streets.  Like green bikes I guess.  

 

Those fines amount to like $2,500 per car in one year.

Isn't the point of having these Car2Go cars around so that fewer people need to own cars thereby freeing up space?  Odd how it didn't work out like that...

80,000 users for 350 cars though.  That sounds like a reduction in individual ownership.

 

Vancouver has 3,000 Car2Go cars.

Actually, it sounds like not near enough cars for the user base.

Vancouver has 3,000 total carshare vehicles on the road, which includes Car2Go, ZipCar, Modo, and Evo.

 

Car2Go's data published in December has Vancouver with 1,100 vehicles for 151,000 members, Toronto with 430 vehicles for 69,000 members https://www.car2go.c...eet-english.pdf
