Ithaca Carshare is a local non-profit carsharing service with the mission of enhancing community access to transportation while reducing its negative environmental and economic impacts. The organization is committed to reducing the necessity and expense of personal vehicle ownership, while also acting a community resource for information about transportation impacts and options.
Ithaca Carshare is in its third year of operation and currently serves a membership of 1,000 drivers with a fleet of 13 vehicles.Members of Ithaca Carshare have self-serve 24/7 access to the fleet, which includes 12 fuel efficient hatchbacks and a pick-up truck. Reservations are made online or by phone and can be made for as little as 15 minutes up to multiple days. Gas, insurance, maintenance and roadside assistance are all included in the membership and usage rates. Membership is open to drivers age 18+. Named the 2009 Transportation Initiative of the year by the Tompkins County Environmental Management Council, Ithaca Carshare has become a valuable transportation option in our community.
