The Drivy car sharing app has received a number of new updates as the service passes the milestone of two million active users globally.

Drivy now has 50,000 cars available for car sharing in six countries – this includes its current expansion across the UK following its launch in London seven months ago – and has seen the app become the most popular method to access cars; 60% of the Drivy community use their smartphones instead of desktop browsers.

As a result, the app has been completely redesigned to be in line with Drivy’s new focus on mobile experience and instant car sharing, including easy map visibility of cars’ locations and a new one-tap payment button.

The latest version of the app will introduce a dedicated four-hour price offer – allowing its users to get a car for four hours or less, meeting the need for short term rentals.

Katy Medlock, recently appointed head of UK at Drivy, said: “Our aim is to make car sharing a quicker, easier and cost-effective means of transport. Having launched in London just seven months ago, our growth is proof that city-dwellers have been looking for alternatives to car ownership or considering how to recoup some of the costs associated with owning a car.”
