Car Sharing

Car sharing is the eco-friendly alternative to car ownership and traditional car rental. When you join a car sharing service you’ll have access to a fleet of vehicles parked in your neighborhood and pay by the hour when you drive. Fleet vehicles are extremely useful when wanting to hire a vehicle for your business needs, you can do this by checking out sites such as autoconnectgps.com/fleet/, where you will be able to hire commercial vehicles.

Most car sharing services have yearly or monthly membership fees. Rental is typically by the hour with gas and insurance included. Sign up online – once you’re approved, you’ll receive a smart card in the mail. When you’re ready to roll, reserve your car online, over the phone, or even with your iPhone or smartphone app. Cars are kept in designated lots or parking spaces. Hybrid and fuel-efficient vehicles are usually available. Some car sharing services are not-for-profit organizations.

Car sharing offers the freedom of having a car available when needed without the hassle and cost of ownership. Studies have shown that car ownership encourages excessive driving while car share members only drive when it is necessary. Car sharing results in fewer cars on the road, less traffic congestion and a cleaner environment.
