AlphaCity car sharing platform passes one million mile landmark
Fleets using Alphabet’s AlphaCity corporate car sharing platform have smashed the one million ‘shared miles’ driven mark.
For the year to date, AlphaCity vehicles in the UK have travelled 1,022,084 miles as a result of over 17,500 bookings.
The vehicles are being run by corporate, public sector and SME customers to meet the mobility needs of many different types of employees, with an average of 33 users per vehicle. The average AlphaCity return journey length in the UK is 58 miles.
The firm added that AlphaCity also demonstrates the successful take-up of EVs, with the BMW i3 having joined the scheme.
Nick Butler, Alphabet’s head of corporate mobility, commented: “As we’ve seen with other successes in the sharing economy, such as Uber and Airbnb, this is no longer a ‘niche’ solution but one which is being used and appreciated every day by a significant number of people for business travel. Employees love the low emission, business spec vehicles being available on demand while businesses benefit from a more cost effective and efficient way to address their real world challenges such as taxi costs, rental vehicles, pool car management and grey fleet.”
