Mobility lowering their km rates

I was just wondering last week that they should bring it down.

Almost nothing though, maybe one could start a thread : Best way to invest the 2 CHF saved from mobility.

Reduction for the first 100 kilometres of each drive: 2 centimes per kilometre
Reduction starting from the 101st kilometre: 1 centime per kilometre

Re: Mobility lowering their km rates

sorry, slightly off topic. But how do you find Mobility? Can you pick up a car at any mobility station and drop it off in another one?

No. Cars have to be returned to the same station from where they were picked up.

No you can't. Bad i know! But unfortunately this is how it is. How i find mobility? I find it a great idea, has its good and bad. For occasional car user it is a very good option, for more extensive users maybe not the best.

Re: Mobility lowering their km rates

Mobility is useful for short trips, like your weekend groceries or to go to the mall to shop for furniture. However, if you go beyond 50 km it becomes quite expensive.

The good thing though, is that your subscription is valid in all of Switzerland. So if you live in Zurich for instance and want to visit some place near Lausanne which is difficult to reach by public transport, you can take the train to Lausanne and pick up a mobility car there to go to your final destination.

That is effectively how Mobility is supposed to work. You're supposed to use public transport (train and/or bus) to do the bulk of the travel and use the vehicle just for the last bit. Or else if you live in town and don't need a car for every day use, but occasionally have to out to IKEA or something similar.
It's not like a classical car rental company.
