Share a Ride Car-Sharing Discounts and Benefits

The Benefits of Car-Sharing

Car-sharing is an alternative to the costs and responsibilities of personally owning or renting a car. It's also more flexible than public transportation. Penn works with two car-sharing companies; Enterprise CarShare and ZipCar. Both companies offer the option of opening a departmental or personal account.

Benefits for Penn Faculty, Staff and Students

  • Convenience: Hybrids, mini-vans, and more are available by the hour or day from convenient campus locations. Driving is easy -- book online, hop in, and go!
  • Green: Car-sharing simply takes more cars off the road. People who frequently use car-sharing also tend to sell their own cars eventually and start using alternate modes of transportation, like biking and walking.
  • Affordable: Owning a car is expensive with gas, insurance, parking, repairs, etc. With car-sharing, you get the benefits of having access to a personal vehicle without all the added cost.
