General Motors’ personal mobility and carsharing service Maven is coming to Canada.

Via GM Canada, the Maven pilot program will launch in downtown Kitchener in Ontario, exclusively for members of the Communitech Hub, according to a GM blog report.

The Maven vehicles will be accessible with a smartphone for the pilot. Members may choose from one of five vehicles (Buick Encore, Chevrolet Cruze, Chevrolet Malibu, Chevrolet Spark, and GMC Yukon) for $7 an hour or $63 per day, says the report. Maven covers fuel and insurance costs.

Launched in January 2016, Maven is currently available in 16 U.S. cities, including Ann Arbor, Mich.; Atlanta; Baltimore; Boston; Chicago; Denver; Detroit; Jersey City; Los Angeles; Nashville; New York City; Orlando; Phoenix; San Diego, San Francisco; and Washington D.C.
