TORONTO--Nov. 7, 2013: Today, car2go Canada Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Daimler North America Corporation, thanks the voters in Toronto for choosing car2go as Toronto's Best Car Service in NOW Magazine's 2013 "Best of Toronto" reader's poll. Since its launch in June 2012, more than 24,000 people have registered as members and collectively share a network of more than 350 car2go edition smart fortwo vehicles. car2go members in Toronto are enjoying the benefits and flexibility of car2go's pioneering one-way carsharing model without the restrictions of mandatory return trips.
"We are grateful to be awarded Toronto's Best Car Service by NOW Magazine in Toronto and appreciate the overwhelming show of support from the voters, our members and advocates in the community," said Nicholas Cole, president and CEO of car2go Canada Ltd. "Torontonians have recognized that car2go is a great local mobility option that conveniently connects people to the many things that this great city has to offer."
car2go has become a part of Toronto's progressive and diverse community through local neighborhood partnerships, local business relationships and investment in homegrown associations at hundreds of events such as the Taste of the Danforth, PrideTO, Word on the Street, Kensington Market Pedestrian Sundays and Toronto Christmas Market in the Distillery District. car2go continues to educate, share and spread the word about point-to-point carsharing through on-going community partnerships and local events. Toronto car2go members also have access to use car2go in the other three car2go Canadian locations, including Montreal, Calgary and Vancouver.
car2go is currently offering Toronto residents memberships for $10 (a $35 value), including 30 free minutes of car2go Drive Time, for new registrations using the promotional code "car2golife." The car2golife campaign features Toronto resident Stephanie Malek and her memorable car2go experience.
