PhillyCarShare is a non-profit organization dedicated to reducing automobile dependence in the Philadelphia region through community-based car sharing.
Launched in 2002, PhillyCarShare is a non-profit organization that operates a rapidly growing fleet of “cars by the hour” from 200+ neighborhood locations (pods) in the Philadelphia region. Each of the over 28,000 members, including 1,200 businesses, receives a personal key and 24-hour access. Then driving is easy: reserve online, unlock, and go!
Rates start at $3.80 per hour or $39 per day, plus $0.18 per mile, and include premium insurance, parking, maintenance, and gasoline.
Every car we put on the roads removes about 23 private cars. Many members avoid buying or replacing cars; walk, bike, and take transit more; and save an average of $4,000 annually versus owning cars.
Car sharing works great for people who need a car occasionally, without the costs and hassles of ownership.
