U Car Share owned by truck rental giant U-Haul is launching its alternative to vehicle ownership at another higher education institution, Regis College in Weston, Mass. U Car Share allows students, staff and faculty access to cars 24/7, eliminating the need to bring cars to campus.
Starting in August, U Car Share vehicles, a Toyota Prius Hybrid and Ford Focus, will be stationed at the campus. Students can join U Car Share and pay only for when using the vehicle. The hourly rate is $9.50.
Students, faculty and staff will be able to access the vehicle with a U Car Share membership card. They will be able to log on to ucarshare.com at any time and reserve their vehicle of choice. Members can reserve cars for as little as an hour at any time of the day.
Until Aug. 30, the normal $50 membership fee is waived. Log on to ucarshare.com and enter promotion code REGISFREE20091 when signing up.
U Car Share also is available in: Portland, Maine; College Station, Texas; Madison, Wis.; Berkeley, Calif. and Portland, Ore.
