DriveNow Launches In London
A new car hire scheme called DriveNow launched in London on Thursday. Users have to pay a registration fee of £29, and then look for free cars nearby via the DriveNow smartphone app. That's different to other car hire services like Zipcar, where cars have to be returned to a designated lot. DriveNowThis is where DriveNow is available right now. DriveNow is currently available in three London boroughs, Islington, Hackney, and Haringey, but is in talks to expand to other areas of London. Joseph Seal-Driver, head of operations in the UK, says DriveNow is changing the way people get around. The company currently operates in eight European cities and DriveNow hopes to achieve similar success in London, its eighth market. Ben Plowden from Transport for London, said in a statement provided by DriveNow: "The mayor and TfL has long supported the growth of car sharingschemes across London, as they can help encourage more alternative travel choices."
