Car Share

Carsharing is a program which offers cars by the hour or by the day for errands, meetings or just having fun.  It is intended to substitute for private vehicle ownership, making occasional use of a vehicle affordable.

York University has partnered with Zipcar who provide service to students, staff and faculty on campus.


York University and Zipcar, North America’s largest on-campus car sharing service, enjoy a continued partnership to provide Zipcars to campus faculty, staff, and students, as an environmentally-friendly alternative to the costs and hassles of keeping a car on campus.

Self-service Zipcars are available for use 24 hours a day, seven days a week, currently located in the Haynes Avenue Lot at York University’s Keele Campus.
