Car share has many co-benefits, including:
» Saves families and individuals hundreds of dollars every month in car payments, insurance, gas, registration and repairs by enabling members to avoid owning a personal vehicle or additional vehicles
» Encourages individuals to choose alternative commute options by providing short-term car rentals near work or school for shorter trips such as errands and business meetings
» Reduces the need for vehicle ownership and reliance on single-occupancy vehicle travel, thereby reducing vehicle miles traveled and GHG emissions.
