blank

GoCar plans to invest more than one million euros in the expansion of its carsharing fleet this year.

The investment will fund the purchase of new cars and vans to meet growing demand for car sharing services in Ireland. Last year, the number of trips booked increased by 5 percent compared to 2020.

By the end of this year, GoCar will increase the number of car sharing locations by 15 per cent to 700 across Ireland. The company estimates that more than 900 vehicles can be rented by the hour.

GoCar will expand beyond Ireland’s urban centers of Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Galway this year with a focused regional rollout. This includes new locations in Kildare, Wicklow and Meath.

Vehicles will also be available in Wexford, Waterford, Kilkenny and Louth. Mayo and Kerry will also be included in the expansion.

GoCar increased its fleet by 10 percent last year and now has a total of 860 vehicles nationwide.

“For many households, GoCar represents a reliable and essential alternative to car ownership and is a truly cost-effective solution for everyday transportation needs, including commuting, shopping, leisure travel, layovers and more,” said Country Manager Paul McNeice.

He added that demand for carsharing is increasing due to the “flexibility, cost and environmental impact” of GoCar’s offering.

At GoCar, customers can rent cars and vans from €10 per hour. The cars are unlocked via a special app, with the keys inside the car. The rental price set by GoCar includes fuel, insurance and parking fees in the city of Dublin.
