This of course seems like a fantastic idea. But I suspect the devil is in the details.
People I know, who use the service, state that it often requires that you reserve a week in advance to get a car from communauto for the weekend. I’d curious to know from others, if this is in fact your experience. Because if so, dropping the $500 registration fee is going to open the door to many new subscribers.
Communauto’s fleet of cars, would be overextended and they would no doubt have to purchase more cars.
