carsharing: mobility on demand

Carsharing is a transportation service that provides communities with a neighborhood-based fleet of vehicles. This service is available to members for a set rate 24 hours a day, seven days a week. When you have access to a vehicle throughout the day for errands or meetings, it becomes more convenient to take transit, carpool, vanpool, walk, or bike to work or school.

car2go provides a carsharing service with 300 all-electric smart cars available on demand to members. car2go vehicles can be picked up or dropped off in many parts of the cities of San Diego and Chula Vista, and in select locations around San Diego State University. Zipcar San Diego has approximately 55 vehicles that can be used by members throughout the San Diego region. Additionally, carsharing services are available at most universities in the county for students and residents near campuses.

Carsharing is affordable. Usage fees cover all vehicle-related expenses, including insurance, parking, and emergency roadside service. Convenient and easy, members are able to view vehicle availability via the Internet or smart phone and access vehicles using a smart card.
