Over 100 residents join Hertz car share
City of Hoboken announces:
MORE THAN 100 SIGN UP FOR “CORNER CARS” IN 2 WEEKS
Less than two weeks after kicking off the Corner Cars city-wide car-sharing initiative, more than 100 residents have signed up for the program.
As of June 28, there were 21 car-sharing vehicles deployed and 115 new members who signed up using the “
” promotional code. The 42 vehicles in the initial phase of the program are being rolled out continuously. Hoboken
“The initial response is very encouraging,” said Transportation and Parking Director Ian Sacs. “In some cases, residents have been renting the vehicles even before we’ve had a chance to properly paint and mark the spaces.”
Residents who register and use the promotional code “
” will receive two free years of membership and a $75 credit to their account. A $25 one-time application fee is required of all users. Residents can learn more about the program athttp://hobokennj.org/cornercars. Hoboken
The new Corner Cars program has also led to several inquiries about giving up residential parking permits.
“We haven’t quite had anyone able to sell their car in a week’s time, but we’re already seeing that people recognize the potential savings of doing so,” added Director Sacs.
