Irish car sharing platform GoCar plans to double its fleet next year with an investment of about 10 million euros ($11.4 million).

Since GoCar was launched in 2008, more than 30,000 drivers have signed up to the service, it expects to increase to 100,000 by the end of next year.

Additionally, GoCar is expanding its fleet from about 500 vehicles currently to 1,000.

GoCar has set a number of targets for its business including an increase in the total number of car sharing trips from 100,000 this year to 250,000 by the end of 2019.
