Sometimes you just need a car and when you do, car sharing is a great option. Car sharing is a system of shared access to vehicles parked in your community or at transit stations. Users can pick up a clean, maintained automobile with a full tank of gas and drive it for as long as needed; only paying for what they use. Membership with a car-sharing service includes gas, maintenance, insurance, and parking. Membership fees vary based on the plan you choose.

Many organizations offer car sharing as an added employee benefit or as a way to pay for transportation to and from meetings. Car sharing can save your company money by reducing the amount spent on travel expenses like car rentals and fleet maintenance.
