A four-campus university in Canada has become the latest location for the innovative car2go smart car sharing scheme.

Kwantlen Polytechnic University in Vancouver is offering its 18,000 students a monthly subsidy and free membership, allowing them access to a netw

ork of urban-excellent smart car2go vehicles to transport themselves between lectures.

Benjamin Newsom, Multipass Programme Coordinator for the Kwantlen Student Association, said, “Kwantlen University and the Kwantlen Student Association are committed to bringing innovative and alternative modes of transport to our students. We believe this partnership with car2go is a great addition to our Multipass Programme, and will provide students with the choice of another practical mode of transportation, allowing them to move more easily between our four campuses.”

The university’s Multipass Programme offers students a whole load of ways to enjoy a more sustainable and healthy lifestyle, including low-cost organic food delivery, cheaper gym membership and an intercampus shuttle. The introduction of the access to special edition smart car car2gos will perfectly complement the programme as students can just spontaneously pick up a smart and drop it off whenever they want at one of the many designated car2go parking spaces across the university and the city of Vancouver.

Nicholas Cole, President and CEO of car2go Canada Ltd, added, “We are pleased to be working with Kwantlen University in their effort to support smart urban living and sustainable transportation options. We are confident the students of Kwantlen University will find car2go to be an easy, cost-effective and environmentally responsible way to travel between campuses, as well as a great option for their daily transportation needs.”
