Canadian carsharing company AutoShare and Chevrolet Canada have teamed up to provide more carsharing vehicles to university students across Toronto.

As part of the partnership, Chevrolet will provide AutoShare with 16 Chevrolet vehicles to be used in its carsharing fleet at Ryerson University, the University of Toronto and York University. The vehicles include the 2015 Chevrolet Cruze, Sonic and Trax.

This will be the first time AutoShare, part of the Enterprise CarShare network, will be available on university campuses, according to the company.

“We understand that students need to head off campus from time-to-time, whether it’s to get groceries or explore Toronto’s vibrant culture with friends, so we’re thrilled to help them do that with a convenient and affordable transportation alternative,” said Steve Tudela, vice president and general manager of Enterprise in Ontario. “Partnering with Chevrolet allows us to provide students with a variety of fantastic vehicles at low hourly rates so they have the benefits of a personal car but only pay for the vehicle when they need it.”

As part of this program, the registration fees are waived for students at the three university campuses — courtesy of Chevrolet. Additionally, AutoShare users on these campuses will receive $6 hourly driving rates on all available Chevrolet models, according to the company.

“We are thrilled to be working with AutoShare to provide university students in Toronto with this unique opportunity to find new roads, both on and off the campus,” said John Roth, GM Canada’s VP of sales, service and marketing. “This partnership provides around-the-clock access to a range of fun-to-drive and stylish Chevrolets that feature the latest in-vehicle connectivity, perfect for safely staying connected while getting around busy cities like Toronto.”
