Philly Car Share

Posted by on August 30, 2002

PhillyCarShare is now forming a member-based non-profit organization to bring neighborhood car sharing to Philadelphia. Car sharing is similar to a rental agency, in which members reserve cars by the hour via phone or over the internet. The cars are located in secure off-street, reserved parking spaces a short walk from your home. Insurance, fuel, licensing, and maintenance are managed by PhillyCarShare, and a monthly statement bills you for only the hours and miles you have driven. Will car sharing fit your lifestyle? If you drive less than 10,000 miles per year you will save money. If you don’t need a car every day and often use other modes. If you have a seldom-used second car. If you cannot afford the high costs of car ownership. If you are a car owner who is committed to improving your environment and community. If you work in a business that has employees who use cars for work-related trips.

PhillyCarShare representatives make a short presentations at community association meetings. If you are interested in bringing car sharing to your neighborhood sign up with Philly Car Shares at web site:
