Scooter-Sharing Programs

The Piaggio MP3 is Part of a Vehicle-Sharing Service in Milan

— December 22, 2015 — Autos
The Piaggio MP3 is a three-wheeled motorbike that launched in Europe nine years ago, but it's just finally beginning to become a popular vehicle choice for navigating car-clogged roads.

In addition to providing a time- and space-saving way to deal with the woes of city traffic, earlier this summer, Piaggio debuted a scooter sharing service in Milan to help young drivers cut costs as well. Upon its launch, the shareable fleet included the brand's stable three-wheeled 150 MP3 leaning scooter model, plus helmets, single-use head covers and free smartphone apps for getting around the city, but there are plans to add different vehicles and cities to the program.

While high insurance and vehicle costs often deter young drivers from purchasing and driving vehicles, car sharing services have proven to be en effective way for young drivers to share the cost of owning a vehicle full-time.
