Smart Car Sharing Program to Launch in Columbus
COLUMBUS (Ashley Yore/Ken Hines) -- A new car-share program is hitting the streets of Columbus on October 26.
Users who sign up for a membership with car2go will soon be able to pick up and drop off Smart cars throughout the Downtown area.
Members will use a smartphone app to find the parked cars, and pay 38 cents per mile used. Gas, insurance, and public parking are included in that price.
The car2go program will bring about 250 Smart cars to the Downtown area.
Approximately 200,000 people nationwide are already a part of the program. Columbus is the 9th city to participate.
Interested people can sign up for a membership now, and can obtain 30 free minutes of car2go drive time, and have the $35 membership fee waived, by entering the code CBUS when registering.
