TASS. Short-term carsharing services have become three times more popular in Moscow this year, compared to 2017.

“The users of short-term car rental services have completed more than 18 million journeys since the turn of the year. We have observed a large increase in the popularity of the project, more than threefold in comparison with last year’s figure of 5.5 million” – as told by the Deputy Mayor of Moscow: Maksim Liksutov to TASS on Tuesday.

Liksutov relates the growing popularity of the carsharing service to the rise in the number of cars, flexible tariffs, various client rewarding systems and the emergence of new services. “For example, premium-segment automobiles and vehicles with child seats have been introduced to the service. In addition, the operators regularly expand the usage areas. The vehicles of some of the operators are available in Greater Moscow: Reutov, Dolgoprudny, Mitishi and Khimki” – highlighted Liksutov.

15 short-term car rental companies operate in the capital currently. The number of their fleet has reached 13,000 vehicles.
