Clean Air Excellence Awards
Transportation Efficiency Innovations Award
Car2Go North America and the City of Austin
The car2go is a carsharing model, used alongside existing public transit, that serves to substantially reduce emissions and traffic congestion common in dense urban centers. The shared car2go will provide on-demand fuel efficient transportation by closing gaps commonly associated with public transit commuting. It is a practical, affordable alternative to the rising costs associated with vehicle ownership.
