Seattle – Portlanders have a new way to get around town with today’s official launch of ReachNow car sharing. ReachNow provides members with convenient and easy access to a fleet of new BMW and MINI vehicles perfect for trips around town, evenings out and weekend getaways. To celebrate ReachNow’s second city, lifetime membership is free for a limited time, with drive time charged at an introductory rate of $0.41 per minute.
ReachNow’s initial Portland fleet of 260 vehicles includes the BMW 3 Series, MINI Clubman and two-door MINI hardtop. The initial Home Area will range from Columbia Blvd. in the north, 72nd Ave. to the east, Woodstock Blvd. and Sellwood Moreland to the south and Goose Hollow and the Northwest District to the west.
ReachNow already has plans to add to the Portland fleet with a mix of electric BMW i3 cars and X1 Sports Activity Vehicles later this year. At that time, the Home Area will also expand to serve more of the city.
ReachNow’s affordable pricing is pay per use with no annual or monthly membership fees. Currently, Portlanders can sign up for a ReachNow lifetime membership free of charge, with drive time charged at an introductory rate of $0.41 per minute. Following this promotional period, lifetime membership will cost $39 and drive time will be charged at $0.49 per minute, while parked time will remain consistent at a lower rate of $0.30 per minute. All prices are inclusive of insurance, fuel and parking at public meters on the street within the designated Home Area, plus taxes and fees.
