The “Moov by Garenta Car Sharing Model”, which works with an application downloaded to smartphones and offers the opportunity to rent a car per minute, was put into service with 200 vehicles in İzmir. The system, which has been implemented with the solution partnership of the implementer Garenta company and the Izmir Metropolitan Municipality General Directorate of İZELMAN, is at the Historical Coal Gas Factory Cultural Center, Izmir Metropolitan Municipality Mayor.

Don't own, share!

Stating that they are working to implement the sharing economy in Izmir, Tunç Soyer“For the last five years, we have seen the rise of a new trend all over the world. The economic model that has been going on for thousands of years and is based on 'owning' is being replaced by the 'sharing economy' model based on the concepts of 'use together', 'sharing' and 'co-ownership'. İzmir Metropolitan Municipality invites all actors to be a part of this new economy through the platform called 'İzmir Smart Sharing'.

Emphasizing that the car sharing system they have implemented in cooperation with Garenta is in accordance with the Izmir Smart Sharing approach, they also apply this understanding in the bike sharing system BISIM. Tunç Soyer He concluded his words as follows: With the sharing of cars and bicycles in the “Smart Sharing” system; Traffic congestion, air pollution and parking demand will decrease in İzmir. The parking areas, which should be used as open and green spaces, will be transformed into social reinforcement areas. Thus, transportation will be facilitated for those who do not own a vehicle.

Download, use, drop

Stating that similar systems are widely used in many metropolises of the world, Emre Ayyıldız made the following statement: “This is a sharing economy application. Minutes are rented with the application downloaded to smart phones. In short, we can summarize it as 'take the vehicle from where you want, use as much as you need, leave it where you want'. When you rent, you open the application, you rent the vehicles closest to you in 15-minute periods from the application, with prices starting from 9,5 TL. 15 kilometers of fuel and insurance are included in your 5-minute rental. You open the doors of the vehicle through the application, take the key from the torpedo and start using it. Everything is digital, everything is just a few clicks. Today, the choice of 1 shared vehicle means 10 vehicles leaving the traffic.

This benefits both traffic and cost. In many European countries, local governments support shared vehicles. It offers private parking spaces, encourages its citizens to use shared vehicles and makes special agreements with industry representatives. As MOOV by Garenta, we are in Izmir as the first stop after Istanbul. We hope that this vision shown by İzmir will set an example for our other cities. ”

How will the system work?

The user becomes a member of the “MOOV by Garenta” application that will be downloaded on his smartphone. When needed, he sees the closest vehicle on the system and rents the vehicle he likes. When it happens to the vehicle, the car that detects the phone is unlocked. After using the key from the glove box, the user can park the vehicle in a safe place in the service area and terminate the lease after using it as much as he needs.

İZELMAN parking lots are free

Izmir Metropolitan Municipality İZELMAN General Directorate allows vehicles included in the system to benefit from the parking lots for free.
