City CarShare is a Bay Area nonprofit on a mission to provide convenient, affordable access to cars so that we can reduce individual car dependence and improve the environment and quality of life in our cities.
We continually strive to make our service so convenient, so reliable, and so affordable that people will prefer using our cars to owning their own. In doing so, our members are helping to reduce traffic, parking problems, and dependence on oil while promoting cleaner air, quieter streets, and more open space.
In 2001 a group of Bay Area transportation activists launched City CarShare with the help of several local nonprofits and the cities of San Francisco, Oakland, and Berkeley. We've enjoyed strong community support from the beginning and have partnered successfully with local transportation agencies and other community groups.
We're a nonprofit because we feel that our business model, which focuses on mission rather than profits, is the best way to provide great service to our members for the long-term.
