Bolt launches car-sharing service

Popular car-hailing app Bolt has launched its car-sharing service.

It means it is now possible to rent a car conveniently and affordably through their Bolt app at the tap of a button.

Bolt Drive combines with the ride-hailing and micro-mobility services, ensuring customers have access to an appropriate vehicle whatever the occasion.

Bolt said it is committed to making urban travel more sustainable, affordable, and responsible; and with Bolt Drive.

The aim is to encourage alternative transport options over personal cars, which take up city space and cause congestion.

“Personal cars are the primary cause of problems in urban transport. They are responsible for traffic, environmental emissions, and taking up city space. Bolt’s mission is to help people give up their cars by providing a better alternative. For people to switch from ownership to on-demand transport, we need to offer a more convenient, affordable, and environmentally sustainable option for every distance. We are already doing this for short and medium-distance trips. Bolt Drive now covers the last missing use cases, whether it’s a trip to a shopping mall or a weekend getaway. For the first time, people can give up their personal vehicles, knowing that they still have access to a car at any time, from the same app they already use for scooters, e-bikes, and ride-hailing”.

Bolt Drive was first launched in Estonia and will be unveiled globally within the coming months.
