Car2go autopartage Introduces Car-Sharing Program in Montreal

car2go autopartage, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Daimler North America, will launch its car-sharing model in Montreal next month.

On Nov. 2, car2go will begin its operations in Montreal with 250 car2go edition smart fortwo vehicles, which will be available for shared use in the metropolitan Montreal area, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Registration for membership is now open at Montreal.car2go.com.

"Montreal has always been a pioneer and a leader in sustainable development, and is therefore an ideal choice and location for car2go," said Nicholas Cole, president and CEO of car2go Canada. "Already established in 24 cities around the world, the company's experience shows that members appreciate and support the option to optimize the use of all public transportation alternatives."

For 38 cents per minute, car2go's green initiative embraces the spontaneous and urban lifestyle of Montreal, says the company.
