The Mayor of Almaty, Bauyrzhan Baibek, has familiarized himself with Kazakhstan's largest car-sharing service, the launch of which was financed by Italian investments.
Anytime car sharing-service makes it possible to rent a car on a per-minute basis. The project was launched as part of the Smart City program.
Trani Vincenzo, a representative of the investor, said that the project sets a particular example of using new technologies, allows citizens saving time and money and decreasing the burden on the road transport infrastructure of the metropolis. A customer can find a car via the mobile application. It should be mentioned that the service customers do not need to fuel or wash the car, pay for parking or leave it at a specific place.
