What is car sharing? It’s having a car available to you where you need it when you need it. Car sharing has been in Sydney and other capitals for several years and has now arrived in the ACT with the newest Australian car sharing company, Popcar.

Car sharing is a relatively new concept in the Canberra area that will benefit not only you as an individual, but your community as a whole. The exciting attribute of car sharing is that it makes sense and works on every level, being better for your city and for your environmental resources. It’s about taking advantage of the technology available to us and breaking away from the traditional views on personal transportation.

There are individual benefits. Each member of Popcar enjoys the benefits of owning a car, without the constraint of car ownership. This means that registration, servicing and insurance costs are a thing of the past for our members.

There are community benefits, too. For each car sharing vehicle, at least 12 privately owned vehicles are removed from our roads. Fewer cars mean less strain on infrastructure and less strain on environmental assets.

So why Popcar? Popcar is about challenging inferior traditional concepts about personal mobility and making things better. Through leading technology we want to reinvent the concept of a journey during daily life – how we take it and what it is. We want to redefine the way Australians move around, to rediscover what it is to take a trip. As a member with Popcar, you’ll get to be a part of that.

Have you ever been in a situation where you needed a car, but didn’t have access to one? Have you ever paid way too much for a taxi just to get to and from the shops? Have you ever wanted to own a car, but thought you couldn’t afford it? Well with Popcar, these issues are all a thing of the past. It’s about having access to a variety of cars where you need them, when you need them.

Popcar members enjoy the freedom of having a car, while only paying for it when they use it – now doesn’t that sound too good to be true? Well it’s not – with three different membership plans, you can choose the plan to suit your lifestyle, ensuring that you always get the best value for money.

Booking your Popcar is easy via the online member portal and iOS or Android apps. Choose your location, the time you need to travel and the type of car you’re after. You’ll be shown multiple vehicles and all you need to do is pick the one most suited to your needs.

So what are you waiting for? Try the newest, most exciting car sharing company in the country and enjoy freedom and independence from traditional car ownership. Start your new journey with Popcar today.
