Local startup GreenGo is launching Hungary’s first electric car sharing service in the heart of Budapest, offering a total of 45 cars for those looking to find an alternative way of transport in the capital, according to a press statement sent to the Budapest Business Journal today.
GreenGo aims to offer services to those who regularly travel around in the heart of Budapest, but are not keen on maintaining a car and paying a fortune for parking around the city. One of the many benefits of driving an e-car in Hungary is that no parking fee needs to be paid on e-cars downtown, the press release notes.
GreenGo sees that the capital’s public transport trends have changed a lot recently, and its services are apparently an answer to rising demand among people without cars, who would like to avoid public transport but are not keen to pay for taxis.
For those who would like to be part of the service, a downloadable application for iOs and Android smartphones is available, as well as registration on the serviceʼs official website. Cars can be booked through the mobile application before pickup, and once the user has stopped using the car, the fee for usage is automatically withdrawn from the user’s bank account, the press statement explains.
