Looking for the convenience of a vehicle without the cost of ownership? Car-sharing can be your solution!
Car-sharing is a short-term vehicle rental service that’s perfect for those who require occasional use of a vehicle, or need one for short trips. Vehicles are usually:
- Accessible – located in or near residential neighbourhoods
- Affordable – rates based on usage; no maintenance costs
- Convenient – make reservations online or using your mobile device
How it works
Typically, users register with a car-share program provider, which allows them to reserve vehicles for use. Vehicles are usually rented by minutes or hours, up to one day. Depending on the provider, you may be able to book a car for several days.
Car-sharing is a cheaper, greener option to vehicle ownership. Not only do you save on the cost buying a vehicle, someone else will take care of maintenance and insurance. People who car-share also help ease congestion by taking cars off the road, thereby reducing all the environmental impacts that go with it.
