Transportation Insider: City might soon have Smart cars for rent

The rumor mill has been buzzing for months about whether a car-sharing service would come to Columbus.
Turns out, there might be some fire to go with that smoke.
Car2Go, which offers car sharing in eight U.S. cities, has been making presentations to neighborhood groups in Columbus and has circulated a proposed service-area map.
The company provides Smart cars at 38 cents a mile for the first 150 miles and 45 cents a mile after that on top of a $35 one-time registration fee…
 “With the launch of CoGo Bike Share in Columbus this week, we believe car2go will serve as a perfect complement to this exciting new transportation service,” Paul DeLong said in an email.
