Shared cars will be back in use


The service operator regarding the Electric cars pilot project, which has been in POAS use since January will change starting 12.8.2019. The OP shared car service will change over from OP to a bigger domestic leasing company Secto Automotive.

– We had enough time during the pilot project to get good experience regarding the benefits of shared cars and assess the markets maturity in our area for shared cars.
The occupancy rates achieved with our shared cars and the feedback from the users have been very positive.
The goal is to get the shared cars back in use smoothly through the new operator, says Timo Jokinen from POAS.

POAS shared cars are only in use for POAS own work-related usage until the changeover between operators.
Secto is hoping to launch the public rental use of shared cars during august 2019. The head of sales at Secto, Juha Qvick, says that Secto has invested in the shared cars service and its functionality during a long time:

– Shared cars have been talked about a lot publicly, but the service has been difficult to implement practically.

With the help of the user community, we have developed our own solution
during a long period of time and I think we have managed to pack all the necessary features together
into an easy to use, scalable and cost-effective package.

After the change of the operator, POAS shared cars can be hired from familiar home points with old prices during August 2019. We will announce a more specific time when the cars are programmed etc. In connection with the change of the service operator, the contract for the rental cars will be renewed. Secto will inform about the new contract at the start of the service.
