CHICAGO: Car2Go, the company that allows its rental cars to be picked up in one part of a city and dropped off in another, has gained more than 10,000 members in Chicago since a pilot programme started in late July, the company said. 

“It's exceeding our expectations,” said Josh Moskowitz, the Austin, Texas-based company's regional director for North America. He said he expects business to improve even more as the weather gets colder.
