PSA Launches DC Car-Sharing Service

Groupe PSA has launched its car-sharing service in Washington DC.

The group claims its Free2Move service provides DC residents and visitors with “access to a fleet of 600 cars” across the city. It says anyone can rent one of the cars as long as they have a valid driver’s license and pay a $10 registration fee. PSA also claims its Free2Move Carsharing app automatically calculates the least costly journey for the user, and parking, gas, and insurance for users over 21 are included in the fare.

PSA currently operates Free2Move in 12 countries, but this is the service’s first major foray into the US market. The group claims it plans to collaborate with Bird, Capital Bikeshare, car2go, Jump, Lime, Skip, and Uber on further mobility services in Washington DC. Groupe PSA North America President and CEO Larry Dominique said the move represented the “first-step” of a wider plan for the group to “re-enter” the US market “pragmatically”.

Groupe PSA North America Carsharing President and CEO Michel Stumpe added: “Washington DC was a natural choice for our launch based on population, traffic density, and the wide range of mobility options”.
