Streetcar announced its new app for iPhone and iPod touch is now available from the App Store. The Streetcar App enables users across the UK to locate, book and open a car using their iPhone or iPod touch coupled with smart card technology.
Users can unlock the rentals using either their iPhone or iPod touch, or a remotely activated smart card. Once the customer is finished with the car, he or she can return it to a dedicated Streetcar parking space.
Independent research conducted by Transport for London shows that each car club vehicle on the road replaces an average of 26 privately-owned cars. Each rental car has an average of 40 users and, of those, over half chose not to buy (or replace) a car when they join the club. Streetcar has already taken approximately 20,000 privately-owned cars off the UK’s streets and is aiming to prevent the emission of around 50,000 tonnes of CO2 over the next two years.
The Streetcar App is available for free from the App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore/.
