Communauto is to launch a car-sharing service comprising hybrid and electric vehicles (EVs) in Saint-Laurent, a borough in Montreal, Canada.
Mayor Alan DeSousa says the Communauto Flex service will allow users “to get around more quickly in Saint-Laurent and easily access other Montréal boroughs”.
It is free to join and works on a pay-as-you-go structure. Daily trips cost $0.41 per minute, $15 per hour and $50 per day.
Drivers will only be allowed to park the Flex vehicles in a zone located by Boulevard Marcel-Laurin and Boulevard Côte-Vertu and a second area at Montpellier commuter train station, bounded by Boulevard de la Côte-Vertu.
The borough says it will monitor the service over time to ensure balanced parking at both zones.
