Soon the Hill will have it’s very own UCar Rental Car. It will be located in a reserved parking spot on Congress Street between St. Lawrence Street and Atlantic Street. The service is expected to be implemented by the end of the year.
Almost two years ago, the city council approved the introduction of four Chryslter PT cars at two locations in the city. Two are parked at 4 Elm Street near the bus line and the public library. The other two are parked at 46 Commercial Street across from the Casco Bay Lines. This latter site was chosen for its proximity to the terminal for island and peninsula residents’ use.
Last night the city council approved the additional car for the Hill. It will be parked in a dedicated spot. Participants gain access with membership cards. Once an account is set up, members may reserve a car oline or over the telephone.
