CarShare Vermont’s mission is good for our community. Not only does our service directly improve air quality and traffic around town, it is proven to get people out of their cars, engaging with their neighbors and supporting our local economy.
CarShare Vermont helps make our transportation system more equitable. By providing access to vehicles at a fraction of the cost of ownership, we help people get where they need to go regardless of income. This brings more stability and economic health to our community. To help further our social mission, we’re proud to provide our MobilityShare program, which gives financial assistance to income-qualifying individuals and families that need a little extra help using our service.
Together with the University of Vermont, Champlain College, and the Chittenden Area Transportation Management Association (CATMA), we’re also trying to limit the number of cars that come to and park in town everyday. We thank and applaud UVM and Champlain for helping to generously underwrite the cost of our service for their affiliates, making it a more attractive option than bringing a car to Burlington.
