Haifa catches a ride with Car2Go 
The popular car-sharing service Car2Go that has seen success in many cities in central Israel is now expanding to Israel’s north. Some 40 cars are now available in Haifa, with another 60 soon to join the fleet. What’s more, the vehicles are electric, an environmental first for Car2Go and the nation.


Vehicles are available 24/7 and can be picked up and dropped off in different places at designated parking spots, allowing drivers to easily travel from point A to point B. Haifa has designated 300 spots for the project, and assembled 30 special charging stations. Cars cost NIS 1.20 per minute, which results in an average 35-50% savings over a taxi ride. A collaboration between Car2Go, JNF, Israel’s Environmental Protection Agency and the Haifa Municipality, the entire scope of the project is estimated at over NIS 20 million.
