Dave Storey, Director Of Services for Environment, Climate Change & Active Travel at Fingal County Council, commented, “it is great to see Driveyou, a new mobility start-up choose the greater Fingal area to kick off its next phase of expansion. This will benefit locals by providing an additional way to travel and we are delighted to see these twelve locations go live during European Mobility Week. Car share is a key action of the Fingal Climate Action Plan and adds another sustainable transport option alongside public transport and active travel by walking or cycling.”
Jonathan Roche, Managing Director of Driveyou, said, “Driveyou are thrilled to launch in North County Dublin, we’d like to thank Fingal Conty Council for giving us the opportunity to make live twelve excellent locations including this one at the Liam Rodgers Community Centre. We look forward to serving the greater Fingal community.”
Car sharing has fast embedded itself in local communities around the country especially but not limited to urban areas. Car sharing schemes aim to reduce car ownership, eliminate the cost of owning, insuring and maintaining a car annually. In some scenarios it has even reduced the requirement in some households to own a second car which realistically is seldom driven.
Driveyou entered the mobility market back in April this year, launching in Dublin, Cork Galway and Limerick. With the new locations listed below it now has over 100 car and van options available for its 5,000+ users at over 50 locations. With an ambition to offer exceptional value for money, great customer experience through its car sharing app but also provides their users 24/7 support through their phone and online helpdesk.
