Capital CarShare has launched its car-sharing service in Albany. With two Hyundai Accents and two Toyota Priuses available, the company plans to add two more vehicles soon, according to a report by the Times Union.

Car-sharing members carry a key fob to enter a car, which they reserved either online or over the phone. There are two options for membership: the gold level is $30 a month and $5 per hour and the silver level is $5 per month and $11 per hour, says the report.

Nnenna Ferguson, Capital CarShare’s director, told the Times Union that the company hopes to add 100 members by September.
