Car-sharing company Mint Cars On-Demand opened a new location in Davis Square in the Boston area the week of Jan. 30, according to The Tufts Daily.
The company, founded by Tufts alumnus Richard Ull, operates locations in New York City and Boston. The business provides access to vehicles for anywhere from an hour to as long as several days. Memberships are available for drivers who are 21 years old and over.
The Davis Square location offers Nissan Sentras.
Ull who launched the company in 2008 in New York and expanded to the Boston area in 2011, said the large concentration of universities and students in the Boston area makes it a good locale for the company.
For $25, customers can sign up for a membership online at www.drivemint.com. Cars can be reserved at an hourly or daily rate. Reservations includes gas, insurance and up to 180 miles per reservation.
A search tool allows customers to refine the search by vehicle, as well as by time and location.
Mint Cars On-Demand operates 50 locations in the New York area and is the second-largest car sharing company in the Boston area after Zipcar.
