SINGAPORE (Dec 12): Singapore launched on Tuesday its first large-scale electric car-sharing programme through which the land-scarce city-state hopes to provide commuters with more transport options and steer them away from the need to buy their own cars.

The service, which will be run for a decade by BlueSG, a unit of France’s Bollore Group, is a part of Singapore’s plans to reduce the number of vehicles on its roads and encourage the use of public transport.

The city-state, one of the world’s most expensive places to own a car, said in October it would not allow any net growth in its car population from February next year citing the scarcity of land and the push to develop its public transport system.
