    Default Car2Go Shutting Down Service in Calgary Oct 31 2019

    Just saw it come across the twitter feed. Now how else will I post pictures with the Mercedes steering wheel in it to impress my fans? Seriously though, what a bummer. Super convenient to take to Flames games or the Stampede and beat the heck out of public transit. Did Big Scooter and Big Electric Bike cause the death of Car2Go?

    Pretty crazy. I wonder how much of their business went to the scooter companies? They should have at least went through the winter and see how that went.

    I wonder if they will sell any of their fleet or just move to other locations?

    Pulling out before winter is the ultimate troll move to teach the scooter gang a lesson for fucking Car2Go business model over.

    I hope they do. I’d pick up a gla250 for cheap.

    Car2go isn’t in that many cities so I doubt they can just shuffle all the Calgary Cars to Vancouver / Toronto and not have too many

    Man, who are Mercedes going to sell all their CLA, GLA, and Smarts to now.

    Presumably this is for the new company to roll out? Car2Go is massively popular here.

    Scooters will win when they take out the dedicated bike lane for a dedicated scooter lane, which might not be all that far off.

    If the cars were ever where the GPS said they were, maybe they would get used more

    Gonna miss it. Hopefully scooters get the boot and another company will fill the car sharing void. Pretty useful for a quick odd trip and a great cheaper alternative to taxi to/from the airport. Only downside is it really jammed up DT parking. Overall it was nice to have the choice.
