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 two carsharing companies: Enterprise CarSharing (formerly AutoShare) and  Zipcar  who provide service to students, staff and faculty on campus.
