How Car-On-Demand Is Transforming the Weekend Getaway | Dedicated

Share in Style

Weekend getaways without a car used to be a giant headache. Thanks to ReachNow car sharing you can travel in style.

A weekend getaway for Brooklynites without cars was formerly a giant, throbbing headache. Remember when tales of sardine-packed Jitney trips ruled the water cooler on Monday morning?

We do. Then car sharing arrived, and now we brag about it on Slack, casting to the dustbin certain types of weekend schleps. Ever hop on Amtrak and do an overnight in upstate New York, at Saratoga Springs, to check out the oldest continuously operating horse racing track in the U.S.?

The problem is, without a car, you need a horse (or a cab) to see much of the surrounding area — and the latter can get to be expensive, especially if you’ve lost money on the ponies.

But with ReachNow, you can be spontaneous and check out that bed and breakfast a few miles from the train station — and it’s cheaper than a four-ticket package on Amtrak.

With ReachNow, pick up and return from the Brooklyn home area and drive anywhere, 400 miles a day. The price for the weekend – with gas and insurance included — is only $110 a day and gets cheaper the longer you keep the car — five days for $350. All cars are E-ZPass equipped and tolls are free for a limited time.

To register for $15 in driving credit, just download the app (iOS or Android) and enter BKLETSGO17 in the promo section. Credit is valid for the first 500 new members only. Offer expires 9/13/17.
