New ‘car share’ base for Kilkenny city
A company that specialises in reducing the need for car ownership by making access to vehicles easier is increasing its presence in Kilkenny.
Go Car, Ireland’s leading car-sharing service, is doubling the number of locations where customers can pick up and drop up shared vehicles in the city.
It will establish a new base at the Europcar branch on the Callan Road. The company also operates out of McDonagh Junction train station.
The Go Car business model allows people to go online and book vehicles for their personal use, setting out what type of vehicle they require, at what time, and for how long.
The second base in Kilkenny is part of a nationwide expansion that will see 50 new GoCar bases opened before the end of the year.
Europcar Mobility Group Ireland Managing Director Colm Brady said: “There’s no doubt that the demand for car-sharing services is there and as a result, we are determined to make it as accessible as possible to consumers across the country.
“People’s attitudes to car ownership and sustainable transport are constantly evolving, and now, more than ever before, they are rethinking their individual transport requirements and considering flexibility, cost and importantly – environmental impact,” Mr Brady added.
