The shared transporter MyWheels has scaled up the number of shared cars in four cities, namely in Nijmegen, Zaandam, Delft and Almere. A total of 54 new shared cars will be installed. It is a response to the growing demand for shared cars in the Netherlands. In Nijmegen, MyWheels has almost doubled the range of electric shared cars. Of the 31 shared cars that were already driving around the city, 56 have been scaled up. The shared cars are spread throughout Nijmegen and thanks to the upscaling they can be found almost everywhere within walking distance.
Following an official car-sharing pilot that has been running in Almere since February 2022, it has become apparent that many Almere residents know how to find the shared cars. To meet the growing demand, nine new electric cars will be installed in the city. In Zaandam, the range of shared cars will be expanded by the same number. In Delft, the shared cars are mainly used by students. The number of shared cars will be expanded here by eleven cars, so that 41 shared cars can be used here. There is regular contact with the municipal authorities of the cities from MyWheels, to work together for a better living environment.
MyWheels is convinced that only 1 million cars are needed to keep the Netherlands mobile. In this way, MyWheels creates more space on the street, more space for greenery and we make an important contribution to the environment. With 2.900 shared cars, 60% of which are electric, MyWheels is the market leader and the largest car sharing platform in the Netherlands.
