Car sharing company Go Car has announced that to-date this year it has made a €3m investment in expanding its network in Ireland.

The group said that it is planning a further €6m investment in 2018 as part of its national expansion.

The expansion, beyond Dublin and Cork where it currently operates in, will vastly improve access to car sharing across the country, a statement from the company said.

As part of the expansion the company is partnering with Irish Rail and county councils in 16 new bases across Ireland.

Currently approximately 3,000 people use the service car sharing service in Dublin and Cork each month, with over 10,000 people using the car hire service on an annual basis.

The announcement was made to coincide with European Mobility Week this week.

The event, which was established in 2002m seeks to influence mobility and urban transport issues, as well as improve public health and quality of life.

The 2017 theme focuses on sharing forms of transport to reduce our expenses and lower our carbon footprint.

This year 13 locations in Ireland will take part in the event with Galway city, Westport, and Tralee all participating in a 'car free day' on Friday.
