Capital CarShare is a 501c3 non profit in the Capital Region of New York that provides affordable and sustainable neighborhood transportation. We provide access to shared vehicles and promote the use of other shared modes of transportation, such as riding transit, walking and biking to reduce the negative environmental and economic impacts of driving gasoline powered vehicles.
Car sharing is using a community network of vehicles without the costs and hassles of owning a car. It is the flexibility to choose your vehicle – or no vehicle at all, when walking, biking, or using transit makes more sense. It saves you a ton of money, and it greatly reduces the amount of greenhouse gas emissions in the Capital Region.
Our members have 24/7 access to a fleet of eco-friendly vehicles for use by the hour or day. Our always guaranteed benefits include– gas cards, premium insurance when you reserve a car, and 24-hour emergency service.
How It Works:
- Join one of our membership plans as an individual or family
- Reserve a car at a parking location near you online or by phone
- Drive where you want then return the car to its location when you’re reservation is done
