Autolib’ in Paris

Autolib’ is arriving in Paris!

Following the success of the Vélib’ bicycle renting service, Paris is installing car rental stations across the city. Paris continues to reinvent itself and to redefine urban modernity. The Autolib’ system will use electric cars and is projected to significantly reduce the total number of cars in Paris.

French historians and graduate students doing research in Paris will be eager to use both the Vélib’ and Autolib’ systems, which allow new mobility for foreign scholars on long-term research stays in the city.
