LOAS’ residents are offered fully electric shared cars at extremely affordable prices. You can easily book a shared vehicle directly online, and collect it from your chosen collection point when it is most suitable for you. The service is implemented in cooperation with City-Yhteisautot Oy. Cars can also be rented by non-LOAS residents.
LOAS has eight Peugeot E-208 passenger cars and two vans, Citroen E-Jumpy and Volkswagen ID. Buzz. We named our cars in honour with traditions and taking into account the suggestions of our residents: passenger cars Brian, Brita, Giorgio, Herbie, Newton, Juhis, Marie and Car McCarface; vans Pilli and Pulla. Have you spotted the colourful and unique cars in the cityscape?
Contractual prices only for LOAS’ residents:
- passenger car 5€/h, 30€/day (other users normal Japster prices)
- van 15€/h, 60€/day (other users normal Japster prices)
Do as follows:
- Donwload Japster App from App Store or Google Play
- Register and identify yourself. For registering you need a Finnish personal identity number. After that, select "My account" from Japster's menu. Enter to the community code field LOAS and your resident number written together, e.g. LOAS12345
- Book a car and get ready to go cruising
NOTE! The resident number needed for signing in can be found on the intranet. Click “edit basic details” in the intranet and you will find the resident number above your own name. Convenient.
The cars are always returned to the same parking space from which they are collected. When you pick up the car, disconnect the charging cable from the car. Hang the coiled charging cable on the hook on the charger and insert the plug into the socket on the rack. At the end of the reservation, plug in the charging cable into the car and start the charging from the Japster's app. During your reservation you can charge the car via the quick-charging socket at your own expense, e.g. at Recharge and K-lataus charging stations.
