Car Sharing

Car Sharing . . . An Earth Friendly Alternative

When traveling locally on university business, you may want to consider the option of a car sharing service, with our preferred partners at Enterprise Car Share (formerly PhillyCarshare) and Zipcar.  With either company you can:

  • Create a department account
  • Join an existing department account and/or
  • Create a personal account

Don't forget car sharing as an alternative to the costs and hassles of personally owning  or renting a car. It's also more flexible than public transportation.

Check with your department contact to find out if an account has already been established for your department.
