To prepare for the Chicago launch, Shift cleaned, maintained, and inspected all 400 vehicles prior to launch.
We assisted with all of the pre-launch marketing events and successfully deployed all 400 vehicles on the street for launch in less than 36 hours.
In the 17 months that we oversaw day-to-day operations of the fleet, Shift Transit consistently met or exceeded all major KPIs, including:
- Surpassing both vehicle inspection and relocation KPIs
- Maintaining above-average fuel levels across the fleet
- Implementing a citation prevention and mitigation program resulting in the relocation of 2,000 vehicles that would have received a ticket. This effort led to at least 100k in savings for car2go.
As a result of our success in Chicago, Shift Transit was selected to operate car2go’s Austin location just nine months later after launching in the Windy City.
