Do you or could you walk, bicycle and take public transportation to most of your destinations but still need a car every once in a while?
Do you drive to work because you need a car to get to meetings during the day?
Car sharing can help!
The Parking Authority of Baltimore City is helping to launch Baltimore CarShare, a non-profit car sharing organization that will provide a network of conveniently located vehicles for members to rent for as little as a half an hour. Low hourly rates include maintenance, insurance, designated parking and gas!
Members feel free to give up one or more of their cars knowing a car sharing vehicle is available nearby whenever they need one. Employees can save the wear and tear on their own vehicles and use a car sharing vehicle instead.
Imagine a fleet of hybrid vehicles, pickup trucks, minivans, Mini Coopers, BMW's and convertibles available at the click of a mouse.
Car sharing can take up to 20 vehicles off the road!
