Vancouver is a growing area for car2go Canada Ltd.
The car sharing company is expanding its operations in British Columbia, Canada, to meet the growing needs of its more than 23,000 members.
Today, car2go will launch in the City of North Vancouver and add 50 additional car2go edition smart fortwo vehicles to its network.
The car2go Home Area in B.C. will expand from its existing area in Vancouver to include the City of North Vancouver.
“The City of North Vancouver is very pleased to welcome car2go as a new business in our community,” says Mayor Darrell Mussatto. “I applaud their commitment to providing our residents with a sustainable transportation option through this carsharing program.”
