Bike, Walk, Bus, and Sometimes, Drive.

A carshare allows the use of a car when you need one and eliminates the cost and hassle that come with ownership. Carsharing is a practical alternative that helps you meet your transportation needs by supporting you to travel primarily by transit, cycling, and walking, and only making use of a vehicle when you need it.
