The Seoul Metropolitan Government’s Car-Sharing Service received a Certificate of Recognition at the world’s biggest public transport event.
The 62nd UITP Global Public Transport Summit was held from May 15, 2017 to May 17, 2017. The SMG’s Car-Sharing Service was awarded a Certificate of Recognition in Ambitious & Innovative Mobility Projects at the Asia-Pacific Montreal Global Public Transport Summit 2017 along with five other cities and institutions.
This is the fourth award which the SMG has received since joining the International Association of Public Transport (Union internationale des transports publics, UITP) in 2005, with past awards being received in 2006, 2009, and 2011.
The UITP rated SMG’s Car-Sharing Service highly because anyone can easily use this IT-based service using their transportation cards and the service was established with the private sector’s technology and the SMG’s administration.
With the Car-Sharing Service, citizens of Seoul can use the sharing car to drive anywhere at anytime when needed. The service was launched in February 2013 and presently about 1,550,000 citizens are using the service.
