PhillyCarShare, University of Pennsylvania Launch Car Sharing Program

PhillyCarShare and The University of Pennsylvania are launching the largest university car sharing program in North America. PhillyCarShare is deploying 40 vehicles on or next to Penn’s campus and will be establishing a Penn Sustainability Fund for special environmental projects.

This new partnership is a result of a collaborative initiative between Penn’s travel office and Purchasing services and PhillyCarShare.

The program will also provide $25,000 of “free driving” by allocating $25 worth of driving credits to each of the first 1,000 Penn representatives who set up personal accounts with PhillyCarShare.

PhillyCarShare is already on the campuses of Bryn Mawr College, Chestnut Hill College, Drexel University, Eastern University, Haverford College, Swarthmore College, Temple University, Thomas Jefferson University, The University of the Arts, Ursinus College and Widener University.

Members enjoy the freedom of driving while eliminating the costs and hassles of ownership; drivers only pay for the time and mileage they use. Fees cover gas, insurance, maintenance and parking.
