Car2Go Introduces Bike N Ride
In 2015, carsharing will allow members even greater travel flexibility as Car2Go equips half of their fleet of Smartcars with bike racks. This move, a pilot in the international company’s Portland market, will allow members to bike one way and drive home (or vice versa) or drive their bike to recreational riding areas. The introduction of bike racks, which is expected to occur sometime in early 2015, is in direct response to member requests to add racks to the fleet of vehicles located throughout the city.
