New fleet rolled out for latest GoTo round trip service
|Email item||Print item||
A round trip service has been introduced by GoTo today to give users the convenience of having a car available round the clock, whether for meetings, shopping or the weekend.
The company said that this new option serves like a personal car and gives drivers the facility of securing a vehicle three months in advance and keeping it for longer, unlike GoTo’s popular one-way service that can only be booked 15 minutes in advance.
“Our GoTo car sharing option has grown exponentially within just six months and we are witnessing a trend where those living in Malta are slowly seeking alternatives to owning a car – this new service continues to build on this green philosop,” said Car Sharing Services Malta CEO Liran Golan.
GoTo’s new round trip service uses hybrid Toyotas and once the prepaid time is over all you have to do is just drop off the car at the same spot you picked it up from.
The company said that a total of 30 cars will be made available from 10 localities across Gozo and Malta starting this week. Contrary to the one-way service, these cars can only be accessed from private parking areas.
Mr Liran explained, “our goal is to offer an innovative, cost-efficient and convenient alternative to owning a car. This ties in with government plans to introduce alternative transportation modes, and reduce dependency on private cars.”
A new app incorporating both the round trip service (A2A) and the one-way service (A2B) has just been launched.
