Float CarShare has announced it will launch its car-sharing service in Bogota, Colombia. The company worked with New York-based Abrams CarSharing Advisors to bring the service to Colombia.

Customers can use the car-sharing service by following these four steps:
1. Apply online at floatcarshare.com then download the Float app on an Apple or Android device.
2. Reserve a vehicles online or on a smartphone by the hour or day.
3. Unlock the car using the smartphone app and drive off.
4. Return it to the same parking lot upon completion of the rental.

Rates start at approximately $6.38 per hour and include gas, insurance, parking, and maintenance. Anyone with a valid driver’s license and credit card over the age of 21 can use Float.

“Anyone who lives or works in Bogota, experiences the hassles and expense of owning a car and dealing with traffic congestion,” said Francesco Pileggi, founder and President of Float CarShare. “… Car sharing provides an affordable and viable alternative to car ownership and takes cars off the road. Float CarShare is a fully automated platform where individuals and businesses have access to a network of vehicles 24/7. This enables a Float member to rent a car on an “as-needed” basis, paying only for the time and mileage they reserve.”
