Nominated by Gábor Ákos Maróy:
‘Green Go – Green Car Sharingis a shared fleet of passenger vehicles, consisting entirely of electric cars, that currently operates in Budapest. It is the first service of this kind in Hungary, that contains a lot of progressive elements even on an international level. In the Sector of Transportation it is evident for everybody that the future is not in possessing a vehicle but in sharing it. There are already numerous examples all around the world of sharing vehicle-parks like mobility.ch in Switzerland, that provides shared- time passenger vehicles or the also internationally known ZipCar startup from Silicon Valley.
In Budapest Green Go is the first service of this kind. It is more progressive than its international competitors, in a sense that its fleet is entirely electric, and furthermore that the cars can be “put down”, parked on the street, anywhere in the determined districts of the city -as opposed to other similar services, where cars can be picked up from fenced off parking lots, and they have to be taken back to the exact place after use. This way GreenGo cars really substitute taxis or public transportation, and they are also perfect for one -way trips.
GreenGo is a very important new building block of an environmental friendly and livable ambient in Budapest.‘
