New York State Carsharing Resources

Carsharing is a service that gives members access to an automobile for short-term use—usually by the hour, or day—at a cost that includes maintenance. With cars parked in publicly accessible neighborhood locations across the State, users can reserve vehicles entirely via smartphone, and then walk up to a car and drive away, returning later to a reserved spot.

By switching to car sharing, you can save money on car payments, insurance, maintenance, and gas costs. Enjoy the freedom of driving different types of cars to suit your specific needs. Additionally, car sharing helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions, eases parking space demands, and alleviates traffic congestion. Opting for fuel-efficient and electric vehicles also allows you to play your part in creating a cleaner environment.
