Autolib’ Has Arrived

On December 5th, the city of Paris launched an innovative electric-car sharing program called Autolib’ . Starting with 250 all-electric vehicles, and growing to 2,000 by this summer, the collaborative enterprise between the city and private partners is the outgrowth of the wildly successful Velib’ bike-rental service.

The process for renting a “Bluecar” is just the same as the one established for renting a bike. users select from a variety of subscription programs, ranging from hourly to annual, which allows them to take a vehicle from rental stations throughout the city. Renters need a valid ID (a passport will do) and driver’s license, as well as a credit card.
