Daimler’s Car2Go Considering Hawaii Car-sharing Operation
Pacific Business News: "Car2Go, an subsidiary of German car maker Daimler AG, is looking at establishing a car-sharing network of 150 Smart cars in Honolulu.
The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports Car2Go, which operates in Austin, Texas, and shared its plans with state lawmakers at an informational hearing on Monday, could be the first large-scale car-sharing network in Hawaii, with cars available at public parking spaces within a 15- and 20-mile area.
The newspaper reports GreenCar Hawaii had a car-sharing program using six cars at resorts on Kauai and in Waikiki, but has since ceased doing business."
This sounds like a great idea, but I would hold my breath and see if it'll fly. We need to find out why GreenCar Hawaii stopped doing business. If this works out, it will help relieve some of the traffic issue we have now, hopefully.
