Car2go adds Montreal to Canadian network

By ,

Car2go autopartage, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Daimler North America, will launch its unique point-to-point carsharing model in Montreal on November 2nd, after successful debuts in Toronto, Calgary, and Vancouver.

An initial fleet of 250 car2go edition smart fortwo vehicles will be available for shared use in the metropolitan Montreal area, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They will cost $0.38 per minute.

Members can pick up and drop off any Car2go anywhere within the car2go Home Area (Plateau-Mont-Royal/Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie/Côte-des-Neiges-Notre-Dame-de-Grâce and reserved parking spaces in Ville-Marie). They don't need to drive the car back to its original location nor commit to a predetermined amount of time.
