Why Own When You Can Share?

Tap on an app, unlock the door and go. Car share members enjoy convenient, short-term trips to a fleet of safe and efficient vehicles in locations around the Twin Cities. Members have the benefits of a car without the expense and hassles of ownership.

Cars are reserved via app or online and rented by the minute, hour or day (depending on the service). Membership and mileage fees are a fraction of ownership costs and include gas/charging, insurance and maintenance. Car sharing is a great way to live a car-light lifestyle, especially for green commuters.
