MOL, Hungary’s oil and gas company, has launched its own car-sharing service in ten districts across Budapest within an area of 60 square kilometers, it has been announced.
The MOL Limo service will use 200 petrol and 100 electric cars to ferry members of the public around central Budapest over the coming months.
According to MTI, fees cover parking costs, and electric vehicles can be charged at MOL’s petrol stations.
Péter Ratatics, director of consumer services for the MOL Group, said the service is available in the city center and more frequented outer districts.
Ratatics said that a car-sharing vehicle can replace 5-10 private ones, and in a few years petrol cars will be removed from the service.
MOL plans to double the number of Limo cars by 2020 and extend the service to the entire area of Budapest. Liszt Ferenc International Airport could be added to the system as early as 2019.
