Why Own When You Can Share?

Tap on an app, unlock the door and go. Car share members enjoy convenient, short-term reservations 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 online and rented by the hour or day. Membership and mileage fees are a fraction of ownership costs and include gas, insurance and maintenance. Car sharing is a great way to live a car-light lifestyle, especially for green commuters.
