VANCOUVER _ Car-sharing service Zipcar says it will stop operations on May 1 in British Columbia.

In an email notice to its customers, the Boston-based company says the “complexities” of operating in the province, including local insurance regulations, are behind its decision.

The company could not immediately be reached for comment.

In the notice, Zipcar says customers can still use their memberships in other locations and it will continue operating in cities across North America.

Zipcar, which is owned by car rental company Avis Budget Group Inc., came to B.C. in 2007.

Share Now, formerly Car2Go, closed up shop in North America earlier this year.
