Product

Streetcar aims to provide a mass market alternative to private car ownership. It has also shown great innovation in using mobile technology. A Streetcar member can choose from a selection of Volkswagen and BMW brand cards. [2]

A member of Streetcar can not only extend their rental period by text message, but has released an iPhone application. [3]

iPhone App

Streetcar has released a free app which can be downloaded from the iPhone's UK store. The app allows one to search for cars geographically and book them from an iPhone. The iPhone itself is used to unlock the car.

Non-members can use the app to browse for cars, but only paid members will be able to book, and drive, the cars. [4]

History

On April 21, it was revealed that Zipcar had acquired Streetcar. [5]
