Montpelier Ends Carsharing Pilot Program

A small carsharing pilot in Montpelier has ended after two years, according to a report by the Caledonian Record.

Run by the nonprofit CarShare Vermont in partnership with the state, the carsharing program will end in April.

The company says that membership growth decreased after an initial strong interest, says the report. Fees are based on the amount of time and miles driven; they included fuel and insurance.

Carsharing is difficult for the rural areas of the city because residents have limited access to public transportation, according to the report.
