Alphabet's AlphaCity to now offer van-sharing

AlphaCity, Alphabet’s car sharing product, has expanded to offer light vans for the first time.

Until now, AlphaCity was exclusively for BMW and MINI vehicles, but members now have access to shared-use vehicles in every segment from across a wide range of manufacturers, as well as an even greater selection of electric and hybrid vehicles.

This move is to help organisations of all sizes meet their diverse mobility needs.

The company has also redesigned the AlphaCity reservation platform, as well as integrating it into the AlphaGuide app.

In addition to key existing app functions such as access to contract data, electric charging locations or managing service requests, the new AlphaGuide will improve the user experience through a new look-and-feel to make it easier to use and more intuitive.

Users access the CarSharing section of AlphaGuide by selecting AlphaCity from the menu. Users can then book an AlphaCity vehicle for business purposes (according to their company rules) and view all upcoming reservations in detail including vehicle details, pick-up location, as well as the date and time of booking. Users also have the ability to access or cancel their existing AlphaCity reservations via the app.

Carsten Kwirandt, head of marketing and business development at Alphabet International, said: “We continue to offer our customers the best-fit business mobility solution for their company. Improving our highly-successful product AlphaCity by expanding the choice of vehicles which are able to be shared within a fleet, is our latest way of doing so.”
