Sponsor Spotlight: car2go San Diego

The Bike Coalition would like to thank car2go for continuing their support this year!

car2go has been sponsoring the Bike Coalition since 2011, when they first launched in San Diego. Our partnership seemed like a natural fit, as we are both promoting alternative ways to get around San Diego that are good for people and good for the environment.

Haven't heard of car2go? car2go offers an innovative mobility solution in rapidly growing urban areas via a carsharing network of eco-friendly smart cars around the world. And San Diego was the first location in North America with a 100% all-electric fleet! A flexible and "on demand" mode of transportation, car2go complements existing public transportation by bridging the gaps between the “first and last mile” of a member’s commute. Today car2go is the largest carsharing company in the world with more than 1,000,000 registered members in 29 locations with access to over 12,500 interconnected vehicles across the globe.

car2go San Diego has reached a couple of milestones themselves this year. The company has seen more than 1 million car2go trips since its initial launch in San Diego in November 2011. They also recently added a new fleet of 400 all electric Generation III smartfortwo vehicles and expanded to 45 square miles to accommodate more members and trips. Learn more about car2go and how to join.
