Web cars

June 11, 2006

When web technology goes on wheels… A friend of mine told me about car hiring/sharing system. Seems pretty cool.. The idea is to rent cars by the hour when we need it, throught the web. Cars are located almost everywhere in large cities and we apaarently are able to find a car near our place at any time.

It seems to be cheaper that owning a car and also environment friendly..

The system is working in the US (www.zipcar.com) and also here in London (www.streetcar.co.uk).
