New York’s TLC to Implement Car Sharing Technologies
The technology will be supplied by GoTo Mobility, a fully owned subsidiary of Tel Aviv-based car-sharing company Car2go and will let the drivers leasing the car manage their sub-leases and receive payments
The New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC), a municipal agency that licenses and regulates taxis and for-hire vehicles in the city, will accommodate licensed Uber and Lyft drivers who wish to share their leased TLC vehicles using an app. The app developed by GoTo Mobility Ltd., a fully owned subsidiary of Tel Aviv-based car-sharing company Car2go Ltd., lets the drivers leasing the car manage their sub-leases and receive payments. The deal was announced Thursday in a filing to the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange by Car2Go’s parent company Shagrir Group Vehicle Services Ltd.
