General Motors has announced a new car-sharing service called Maven. The new service will allow customers with smartphones to reserve and drive a car for as little as $6 an hour. GM’s clever ride-sharing app will be tested in Ann Arbor, Michigan. That’s GM territory, but also provides a challenging test environment including a medium-sized town, terrible roads, and college students. GM is definitely looking hard at shared crowd-based transportation – what’s next, streetcars in LA?
