MINI Carsharing Service Grows In Seattle

July 17th, 2016 by

ReachNow is a carsharing service in Seattle, WA that makes use of MINI vehicles. The program allows drivers to essentially “rent” vehicles as they need them, paying for only the time they use them, be it minutes, hours, or even the whole day. Among the fleet of ReachNow vehicles are various MINI cooper models, including the MINI Cooper Hardtop 2 Door, MINI Cooper Hardtop 4 Door, and MINI Clubman.


There’s no denying the appeal of a MINI automobile. After only two and a half months since launching in Seattle, WA, the program has announced the first expansion of its Home Area, the location where ReachNow is available. To service this expanded area, 150 MINI Clubman vehicles have been added to the fleet. Steve Banfield, CEO of ReachNow, was excited to share the news, saying “The community has shown us they’re hungry for mobility options, and, as a result, we’re expanding our services earlier than anticipated.”


Here at Bill Jacobs MINI, the first time each of our employees sat behind the wheel of a MINI vehicle was a big moment, and spurred a lifelong love of the MINI brand. We can only imagine that many of the ReachNow drivers will have a similar experience, and we wouldn’t be surprised if more than a few end up wanting their own MINI vehicles after getting a taste through ReachNow. It’ll be interesting to see how far the program expands, and how many new drivers it brings to the MINI family.


For drivers in Chicago, IL, our nearby Naperville MINI dealership is great place to come in and test drive the MINI Cooper S Hardtop 2 Door and the MINI Cooper S Hardtop 4 Door. These classic MINI models show off the iconic MINI styling, and offer the incredible feeling that comes from driving a MINI automobile. Stop by and see why these models are such a hit!
