Carsharing provides people who are, or are interested in, using sustainable transportation choices for everyday mobility needs with access to a vehicle when the need arises.
What is Carsharing?
Carsharing organizations provide members access to a fleet of shared vehicles on an hourly basis, reducing the need for private vehicle ownership. They provide individuals the benefits of private vehicle use without the costs and responsibilities of ownership. Carsharing is ideal for individuals who regularly rely on walking, cycling and public transit for their daily transportation needs but occasionally need access to a vehicle for out of town trips, moving large items or other special occasions (i.e. students, young professionals and seniors).
