Car Sharing in Brooklyn Gets Upgraded with BMWs and MINIs On Demand | Dedicated

Share In Style

There is no “typical” Brooklynite — they come in all shapes, sizes, and styles. But 44 percent of Brooklynites do share one common trait: They don’t own cars.

That’s always made intra-borough travel a bit of a headache. (And the coming L train shutdown won’t help.)

ReachNow, a new car-share service from BMW that debuted last November, has recently increased its footprint in Brooklyn, and is now available from Greenpoint to Bay Ridge — 26 square miles in all.

Just download the ReachNow app on your phone, find an available car nearby on the map, reserve it, and walk to where it’s parked on the street. Unlock it with your phone — and off you go.

Use it all you want, for as long as you want, insurance and gas included, in any way you like — by the minute, by the hour, or by the day. It’s perfect for your next jaunt to Ikea, Coney Island, or JFK.

And midday trips have never been easier. Every Monday through Thursday, drive for up to three hours for only $25. That’s a 50% discount off the normal price.

Oh, did we mention these are luxury model BMWs and MINIs? Leather interiors, Bluetooth, and plenty of trunk space are part of the deal. And this summer, all bridge and tunnel tolls will be picked up by ReachNow.

Sign up for the service right here.
