Pincars Car Share has launched its carsharing service in downtown Richmond, Va.

This on-demand, self-service carshare provider offers vehicles at $15 per hour. Each rental includes parking, insurance, maintenance, fuel, and 24/7 roadside assistance, according to the company.

To rent a vehicle, users need to register on Pincars’ website and download the app. Then they can make an online reservation. Using the app, users can locate the vehicle and then return the vehicle at the same pickup location.

“Moments arise where you need to go to the grocery store, do some shopping at the mall, or visit a love one, said Coretta Kingston, co-founder and president of Pincars. “Having access to our carshare service where you only pay for what you need, not worrying about a surge in prices, and return when done just makes sense.”

Pincars is headquartered in downtown Richmond and also serves the Chesterfield area.
