Chulalongkorn University, one of the most prestigious universities in Thailand, has introduced electric mini cars for students to get around the campus, according to a Facebook post on PostToday (see below).

The Toyota Ha:mo project, which launched Dec 1, is a collaboration between Toyota and Chulalongkorn University to provide 10 mini cars with 20 more to arrive in mid-2018.

They have also installed 12 parking stations and 10 charging stations around the university.

The membership cost for using the cars is B100. Register online at www.cutoyotahamo.com or at the Toyota Ha:mo office located in the university.

As far as rates, the cars cost B30 for 20 minutes, after which the fare increases to B2 per minute. Rates can be debited directly from any major banks or charged to a credit or debit card.

The cars are not exclusive to Chulalongkorn students and professors, but available for use in the university by those who live nearby.
