Car Sharing

Car sharing is a cost-effective alternative to traditional car ownership that may be the perfect fit for individuals who rely on alternative transportation but still want to have occasional access to a vehicle.  By joining a car sharing program, you can avoid many of the costs associated with owning and maintaining your own vehicle and only pay as much as you use.

Please see the websites for the following car share programs operating in Greater Vancouver for specific rates and program conditions.
