GoCar, Ireland’s car sharing initiative has returned to its roots and today re-launched its Cork GoBases located on College View, Wandesford Quay, Anglesea Street and Lower Glanmire Road (opposite Kent station). GoCar also announced the opening of a new GoBase at CIT which will be open for business within a week. As demand increases GoCar plans to increase the number of locations and vehicles available in the Rebel County.
The GoCar initiative works on a pay-per-trip basis which allows the user the freedom to access a vehicle when and as they need it. On-demand access to vehicles will result in less vehicles being used on Cork’s roads and a greater interaction with existing public transport infrastructure as commuters make more conscious decisions about their transport needs.
Anyone over the age of 21 can sign up for a GoCar Membership which will allow them to access vehicles in Cork and at any other GoBase in the country. The beauty of GoCar is that it allows users to budget for the essential vehicle trips they wish to make while removing the stress and cost associated with NCTs, vehicle servicing and insurance premiums.
GoCar CEO Colm Brady commented, “GoCar was born and raised in Cork and it is no surprise that the car sharing concept has really taken off in the city. We are delighted to be opening the new base in CIT and expanding the fleet in the city centre with another new car berth at the Angelsea Street GoBase.
“GoCar is all about changing perceptions of car ownership and there is no better place to start than at CIT where the future leaders and decision makers of Ireland will receive their third level education.”
