VILNIUS – The Bolt platform is launching a short-term car rental service in Vilnius on Monday.

Lukas Yla, director of car-sharing operations at Bolt, says that Bolt Drive has invested 50 million in the new service, which it is now rolling out in the capital with 500 new cars, but expects to increase the number in the future. 

"By the end of the year, we plan to have 1,500 car-sharing cars in Bolt Drive. This will account for 0.18 percent of the total number of cars in Lithuania," he told a press conference on Monday. 

Bolt Drive has no immediate plans to expand into other major Lithuanian cities and towns, according to Yla.  

Bolt is providing this service in Riga, Tallinn and Lyon.  

In Vilnius, two car-sharing platforms, CityBee and Spark, operated until recently.
