General Motors' carsharing service Maven is closing down operations in eight of the 17 North American cities where it operates, The Verge reports.
In a statement, the company said it was shuttering its programs in certain cities — such as Boston, New York City, and Chicago — to focus on better performing markets. The service will continue to be available in Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., Detroit, and Toronto.
Maven, launched in 2016 as a no-membership-fee carsharing service, will continue to be available in some of the markets its leaving under the peer-to-peer carsharing service, Maven Gig.
