SAN DIEGO – The car sharing service car2go is suspending operations in San Diego at the end of this year.
In a statement on its website, car2go said it would cease operations in San Diego on Dec. 31, 2016.
“While we have worked hard and invested a lot to support car2go in San Diego, unfortunately we have not seen enough adoption of our unique one-way carsharing service here to continue operations at this point,” the company wrote.
Car2go has 42,000 members and 255 vehicles in San Diego.
San Diego car2go members will be able to keep their accounts in order to use the service in other cities, such as Portland and Seattle. Twelve other cities in the U.S. and Canada use car2go.
“We believe that cities like San Diego stands to benefit greatly from the positive economic and environmental impacts of car2go,” the company wrote. “We hope that as more people around the world adopt carsharing, we might one day resume operations here.”
