car2go, the largest, fastest growing carsharing company in the world, announced today that its membership in Seattle has surpassed the 100,000 member milestone. This milestone comes just five years after its launch on December 19, 2012, and demonstrates the growth and popularity of one-way carshare via car2go in Seattle.
As a frequent car2go user, I’m cheering on this milestone, knowing that the cars and company are here to stay! I gave up my car over 5 years ago, and rely daily on either the bus, bike, Lyft, Uber, or shared cars such as car2go, and haven’t looked back since. Having a car only when you need it is perfect in this ever-growing, congested Emerald city.
To celebrate this milestone, car2go will reimburse members who take ferry rides with a Mercedes-Benz car2go throughout Labor Day weekend, up to $50. New members can also register for free at car2go.com using promotional code SEA100K and receive $10 in drive credit.
“This is an exciting day for Seattle,” said car2go Seattle General Manager Michael Hoitink. “We are so proud to be Seattle’s top one-way carshare service, and the growth car2go has seen here really emphasizes how forward-thinking Seattleites are. Seattleites have never been afraid to break tradition and try something new in pursuit of progress, and they’re showing that in the way they choose to travel.”
Adventures await in a car2go!
