Carharing service - that's the name of the game - is already popular in American and European megapolises. Now, thanks to Anytime Car rental service, residents of Moscow can enjoy the comfort of an innovative personal transportation service.
According to Anytime, the cars are easy to use: you just need to replenish your account, find a vacant car nearby via mobila app and after using it just leave it anywhere in Moscow - correctly parked, of course. You open and close the car with using the same mobile app.
Everything for the client: rental cost includes gas and insurance, and flexible payment system makes carsharing compete with the option of buying oneself a car due to lack of any maintenance costs. Even more so, Anytime has calculated that one shared car easily replaces the need for 15 personal cars, which would help greatly in reducing trafgic jams and the burden on Moscow auto-roads. There are two obstacles between refusing an own car completely: first, Anytime doesn't come with a "sober driver" option, and after a particularly fun evening a person would still ned a taxi; second, not everyone will be okay with the need to maintain a determined sum of money on their account at all times. Despite what Anytime claims, the rental costs results at about the same as an average Moscow taxi. From the other hand, Anytime drivers will be spared of taxi drivers who know the city only by GPS navigator, form reckless drivers and criminal types.
Anytime's carsharing service can easily be considered comfortable and European, and it definitely may become a relief for a city plagued by traffic jams and for city services waging a war on illegal taxis.
