Car2Go launches its official Windows Phone app for its one-way car sharing service

If you are visiting a city but don't want to rent a car, use a taxi or access a ride-share service like Uber, there is an alternative called Car2Go that lets you reserve, and then drive a car yourself in one-way trips. This week, Car2Go finally launched its official Windows Phone app a few years after its apps for iOS and Android.

Here are the main features of the app:

  • Display of all vehicles available for use in your city and across the globe
  • Seamless reservation system, allowing you to make a reservation 30 minutes in advance of a trip
  • Automatic route guidance to the nearest car2go
  • Important vehicle information, including estimated distance to nearest car2go, street address where car2go is located and fuel gauge or charge state for each car2go
  • Ability to open a car2go using your smart phone
  • Display of all car2go designated parking spaces and "Home Areas" for each city
  • Catalog of all trips, including departure/destination address and cost for each trip
  • Radar functionality that sends a push notification when an available car2go is close by
  • And a bunch of other cool options that make car2go a leader in mobility solutions
