3 years Catch a Car
It’s been three years since we’ve launched Catch a Car in Basel. You are the pioneers of free floating carsharing and have proved that this type of concept also works in Switzerland. Our team says: THANK YOU!
3 years of being independent and flexible are behind us – a huge success that wouldn’t have been possible without you. Incredible how quickly time passes: It feels like we have just started yesterday in Basel and now we’re celebrating our 3 year anniversary and have launched in Geneva.
A little review

Since our launch in 2014 we’ve built a community, have grown together and shown that free floating also works in Switzerland. What will follow in 2018? We’re excited for new innovations, projects and to keep improving our carsharing product. Of course we want to make more cities independent!
