I’d like to try autolib, I signed up as soon as I could, but…


What I want to do next time I go to Paris. This!

Le site officiel Autolib’ Ile De France | Autolib’

Autolib’ est le premier service public d’automobiles électriques en libre service, développé à l’échelle d ‘une grande métropole européenne.

An electric car sharing system available in Paris. You can see this system often in the city of Paris. There is a place for autolib on the street parking space. I’ll have to try this next time I’m in Paris!

I feel like I can go anywhere in Paris.

And I love the Paris drive.

I decided to sign up as soon as I could.

I thought I’d take this opportunity to register. So I tried to Sign Up.

Click on 01 SIGN UP for 1 year, 1 month, 1 week and 1 day plans.

It’s a one-day plan for now. By the way, the long-term plan is more economical per rental.

Well, since we don’t live in Paris, let’s choose 1 day or 1 jour for now.

When you select a plan, you will be asked to enter your name and address. This is the same format as common sites.

Pay attention to the zip code.

ここで注意、あまり良くできていないサイトのようでして、郵便番号はフランス式でないとはじかれます。フランス式では5桁、日本のものは7 桁。そこで、うちの郵便番号は-00××だったので、00のところを省略して、××と無理やり5桁にしたら、問題なく先に進みました。

Apply for ID information such as driver’s license, passport, etc.

If you go to STEP 2/4, you can get an ID for the time being, but this is not the end yet. You will need to provide official proof of driving. There are three ways to do this: online application, by mail, or by going directly to a store (kiosk) to register. Of course, I applied online. You need to upload the following documents as pdf, jpeg, png, etc.: 1. your country’s driver’s license, 2. your passport or other ID certificate, 3. your photo, 4. other international driver’s license, etc.

Payment Method≒Register your card information and exit, waiting for application result

And it specifies a payment method in the last 4/4 STEP, and it ends. Well, the card will be the most convenient.

I applied « NOW », that is, right now, with momentum. I don’t know much about it, so I just went with the flow….

I pressed 02/08/2015, which seems to be the actual date to apply for use. It’s in a pending status now.

As expected, this doesn’t make any sense, but in any case, it seems that I was able to register for the time being, but I wonder what will happen now…

By the way, you can also use it on iPhone. iOS app is available.

The application is still in Pending status, and I would like to see the progress for a while longer. Do you think the day will come when I can use it?

PS: My application was approved.

Took me a day, but my application went through, with my driver’s license, passport, etc. up!

However, the validity period for the one day that I mistakenly applied to use it now yesterday is over (laughs).
