Why should I Car Share?
Did you know the average car costs nearly $10,000 a year to own and operate?
CarShare members save thousands by driving only when they need to, and only paying for what they use. Car sharing is also cheaper than a taxi for round-trip errands, such as grocery shopping or a doctor's appointment.
Car sharing is using a community network of vehicles without the costs and hassles of owning a car. It is the flexibility to choose your vehicle - or no vehicle at all, when walking, biking, or using transit makes more sense. It saves you a ton of money, and it greatly reduces the amount of greenhouse gas emissions in the Capital Region.
Our members have 24/7 access to a fleet of eco-friendly vehicles for use by the hour or day. Our always guaranteed benefits include- gas cards, premium insurance, and 24-hour emergency service.×
