Car sharing in Warsaw from 2016
The Municipal Transport Authority (ZTM) which will be operating the system will announce a tender in order to choose a company in charge of the fleet.
The fleet is to consist at the beginning of five hundred cars. They will be either electric or hybrid engine cars.
The investment will be worth more than ten million zloty (around 2.5 million euro).
The system is meant to be available to registered users paying a regular fee. The prices are yet to be set, but Łukasz Puchalski from the city hall told daily Polish newspaper Rzeczpospolita that they should be attractive enough to discourage Varsovians from using their own cars.
The system should not only reduce traffic congestion, Puchalski said, but also reduce air pollution.
Wrocław will probably be the second Polish city to have a carsharing system, though on a smaller scale than the capital. A company called GoGet plans to launch it next year.
