Not everybody needs or wants to own a car. Especially when you consider that most of us only drive our cars a few hours a week,  which means we spend a lot of money for them to just sit there depreciating. That doesn't make a whole lot of sense in urban settings!

Carsharing is a great way to save money by only paying for a car when you actually need it. According to AAA, the average cost to own a car is $9,000 a year when you factor in car payments, gas, parking, insurance, and maintenance. That's a lot!

Using a carshare car a handful of times a month for those necessary trips can save you thousands of dollars a year. 

Carshare is great for:

  • Trips to Costco

  • Meetings

  • Healthcare Appointments

  • Visiting Friends or Family In the Suburbs

  • Running Errands

  • Picking up Aunt Ethel from the airport

  • And more...
