Car Share

Two Parked Zip Cars

What is Car Share?

Care share allows people to rent a car or truck for short trips, like to the grocery store, and pay less money. Vehicles are available to rent by the minute, hour or day, and Eugene/Springfield has over 60 cars throughout the area ready for you to drive.

How does car share differ from traditional car rental?

Car share vehicles are available to reserve and rent 24 hours a day, have fuel and insurance costs built in with rental prices and are parked throughout the city in convenient, accessible locations. While not available in Eugene yet, there are peer-to-peer car share models that allow you to even rent a car from your neighbor or share your own car to make money.
