Leaving City CarShare

We found out that City CarShare has merged with Getaround, which requires a Facebook account to reserve a car. Our family shouldn’t have to give our information to corporate social media in order to use a vehicle.

I wrote the following, canceling our account:

To whom it may concern,

I have been a member since 2009 and am writing to tell you that I flat out refuse to create a Facebook account. There is no reason for this. I wanted to sign in and get a car today and was unable because after all these years I am not known well enough to your company. I am embarrassed at your decision to demand users become Facebook members. It is unacceptable to me so you give me no choice but to cancel my account.
