Popular Vancouver car-sharing service Share Now, formerly known as Car2Go, is shutting down across North America.
The joint venture between Daimler and BMW announced today that it will exit the North American market and shut down in London, Brussels, and Florence.
This decision was made based on two extremely complicated realities. The first being the volatile state of the global mobility landscape, and the second being the rising infrastructure complexities facing North American transportation today and the associated costs needed to sustain operations here. Ultimately, we are not in a position to commit to the level of investment necessary to make the North American market successful.
The last date you will be able to use a Share Now car in Vancouver will be February 29, 2020.
Car2Go was a first-mover in North American car-share, launching in Vancouver in 2011.
