The number of shared cars operating in Seoul will double over the next three years, as
part of the municipality's eco-friendly policies, officials said Monday.
The Seoul Metropolitan Government said it will secure a fleet of 10,000 shared cars by May 2022 and expand discounts and parking space for their users.
Car sharing service was first introduced in Seoul in February 2013 and the number of
shared cars in the city increased to 4,688 by last December, with the number of
users reaching 6,028 on a daily average.
In line with its goal of raising the number of shared cars to 10,000, the Seoul
government will increase the number of car-sharing companies from the current two --
Socar and Greencar -- to three or four.
The municipal government will sharply increase the number of exclusive parking spaces
for shared-car users. (Yonhap)
