Car-sharing service Carpingo has been chosen as a vendor for the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA)’s new car-sharing pilot program in New York.

Aimed at decreasing the number of cars on the road while lowering overall government costs, this one-year pilot program started in October.

“Carpingo is excited to announce our role as a vendor in the new government and military car sharing initiative,” said Gil Cygler, CEO of Carpingo.

Car sharing can cut government spending more than the traditional government fleet, which requires regular purchase of new vehicles as well as annual maintenance costs. Car sharing also allows flexibility for agencies and access to short-term use. “The GSA car-sharing program is a win-win for both government finances and for taxpayers,” said Cygler.

Carpingo, a car-sharing service that’s part of AllCar Rent-A-Car, operates in Brooklyn and Queens.
