CarSharing is for Everyone!

You’ve thought about it; seen the cars around town and had the thought – “Is CarSharing for Me?” With trends leaning towards delaying car ownership and a shared economy, many people are considering alternatives to a once standard practice of purchasing a car as soon as possible. Carsharing allows people to enjoy all of the positives of having a car on hand but without the hassle, pollution or financial burden of owning your own. So who would benefit from carsharing – who is ‘everyone’?

Students:

It can be hard to find viable options when you are a student! You need access to a car for errands, visiting home, road trips with your friends, shopping across the border and more! But owning a car is expensive, and traditional car rental agencies won’t rent to you if you’re under 21 and they require a credit card.

Community CarShare can accept drivers ages 18-21 and those with a G2 license. Many of our vehicles are located on or near campuses, so it couldn’t be easier! You can also sign up without a credit card.

International Drivers:

In order to be eligible for Community CarShare you need two years of consecutive driving experience – but they don’t have to be in Ontario! We are very excited that we are now able to accept driving history from other provinces and countries. Applications are case by case and require proof of driving history.  

Seniors:

During retirement many members find their driving needs change; they don’t have to go to work daily but still enjoy a car for errands, appointments and recreation. Carsharing is a great opportunity for those who don’t need a car on a daily basis – there is less stress, financial strain and maintenance. We take care of everything for you! Check out one of our senior members explaining how CarSharing helped him here.

One Car Households:

Have more drivers than cars in your household? Is sharing a car at home a point of tension? Sometimes there are those evenings where that one extra vehicle would save you time and stress, and we have an extra 62 vehicles waiting for you and your family! Our household accounts allow families to share the cost and privileges of membership, while allowing affordable access to vehicles on occasions where one car just isn’t enough.

Local Businesses

Whether a small business or a larger corporation, managing staff travel can be expensive and time consuming. Instead of requiring employees to own cars and reimbursing for mileage expense, simply sign up as a Corporate Member! As a member, you and your colleagues have access to a variety of vehicle sizes and capacities, as well as multiple locations around the city to use. You can even call us to arrange a CarShare Anywhere vehicle at your front door! Carsharing is easy on the books, practical for the budget, and supports the local non-profit economy.
