Travellers in London can now avail Zipcar Flex, the floating car sharing service launched by Zipcar.
Zipcar Flex will cater to 3.5 million Londoners and allows members to spontaneously jump into a car and drive one-way across London.
It comes with the ability to drop the car off in one of thousands of spaces within the ‘Zipzone’ while covering an area of over 235 km2 across London.
A payment of 29 pence per minute has to be paid by its members only for the exact time their trip lasts.
It is now one of the cheapest and most convenient ways to get around London.
London borough councils seem to agree, with Zipcar Flex availability to residents in Wandsworth, Islington, Hackney, Lewisham, Lambeth, Waltham Forest, Southwark and Merton.
More Londoners will ditch their privately-owned cars in favour of shared vehicles if it gains momentum in the days to come.
Jonathan Hampson, general manager for Zipcar UK, said that Car clubs traditionally operate from dedicated fixed bays.
Zipcar Flex enables Londoners to make smarter transport decisions and experience convenience and cost-effective car sharing as compared to ownership. It gives flexibility to Londoners.
It closely works with public transport, cycling and walking to give Londoners the broadest choice to choose the right mode of transport for specific journey needs.
