ReachNow BMW i3 Car Rental Instructions – How to Rent ReachNow in Seattle Portland and Brooklyn


If you live in Portland, Oregon, Seattle or
Brooklyn, you have a cool car sharing service called ReachNow that allows you to rent late
model BMWs to get you around. They also have Mini Coopers too but I’ll show
you how to rent an electric BMW i3 today just because I’ve never driven one before. You’ll first have to download the ReachNow
app and get your account set up. But when that’s done you can start looking
for a car! In the app you can specify the model of vehicle
you want. Here I’ve found an i3 about a quarter mile
away. So I’m going to hit reserve and walk to the
vehicle. When a car is reserved, it’s held for you
for 30 minutes. When you get to the vehicle, just tap the
Unlock button and in a few seconds the doors unlock and you can load up. Before starting, you’ll have to enter the
PIN code you set up for your account. And now the rental time has started. Rates are 41 cents per minute to drive and
30 cents per minute to park and hold your car until you return. Each city has home area where the ReachNow
rental has to start and end. It’s really convenient and you can park for
free in any approved parking spot… even metered street parking! To end the rental, find a parking spot and
use the ReachNow app to finish. When all your belongings are out of the car,
tap Lock and your rental will end. In Seattle, ReachNow even has a designated
lot just off SeaTac Airport with shuttle service and it’s the only stop you can make outside
of the home area. If you’re unsure if you’re in an approved
parking spot, the in-dash screen will tell you to move. If you live in a city with ReachNow, I hope
you give it a try and take a look in the video description for additional rental information! I hope you enjoyed this video and if you did
