Sharing is Caring

How do you squeeze the most folks into a car? Car-sharing. New services are popping up in cities all over the world making it easier than ever to find a convenient ride.

Maybe you need a truck for an hour to pick up a couch you bought on Craigslist. Or your whole gang wants to go camping this weekend but won’t fit in your Mini. Rent a car that fits your specific need or timeframe from Zipcar, Car2Go or BMW’s Reachnow. Once you become a car-sharing member you avoid the inconvenience and expense of a regular car rental agency. Or maybe you can avoid buying a car altogether?

Did you know that you could also rent out your car to drivers in your area through Getaround? It’s like an AirBnB on wheels. Fully insured, no hassle, money making!

Vehicles in car-sharing are on the go, parked for an hour or less on average. That means less need for parking spots. The city of Seattle found that 1 in 8 car-sharing members used the system instead of purchasing a car of their own. Fewer cars, reduced parking spots equals less air and water pollution. Now get sharing!
