Ithaca Carshare is a convenient and affordable alternative to reimbursing staff for mileage and the associated record keeping. With an Ithaca Carshare membership, you won’t have to worry about the cost and hassle of owning and maintaining cars for your business. You and your staff get 24/7 access by online or phone booking to our fleet of reliable vehicles. You can have up to ten drivers on one account and see all usage costs on one itemized monthly bill. Plus, you can offer your employees the benefit of a free personal Just in Case membership when they are a driver on your organizational account. Application fees for all business and organizational drivers are $5.

We charge for both time and distance on each trip.

What local businesses and organizations are using Ithaca Carshare?

Small businesses such as Home Green Home find our plan perfect to occasionally deliver furniture, or fill in as a back up vehicle if the work van is already out. For downtown businesses, free personal memberships are a great benefit to offer employees as part of a commuter package for staff who don’t want to search for parking every day.

Green Street Pharmacy uses our cars for weekday delivery routes. The Ithaca League of Women Rollers uses our minivan to travel to away bouts.

Cornell University Housing rotates staff drivers through their account each semester, and use our cars to pick up program supplies and transport program participants.

Our low rates for governmental agencies and non-profit agencies are a great deal, and Ithaca Carshare has helped the Greater Ithaca Activities Center, and the Ithaca-Tompkins County Transportation Council with flexible access to back-up vehicles when they needed them.

What our business members are saying

We love the benefit of free individual memberships offered to staff members. Now, if there are personal errands that need to be run or an emergency comes up, our staff knows they have access to Ithaca Carshare. Since our office is downtown, we are never more than a couple of blocks away from a car.” – Teresa Linde, Ithaca-Tompkins County Transportation Council

It’s so convenient. I use the Green Street car to deliver prescriptions to private residences, as well as several group homes and offices.” – Shelly Rogers, Pharmacy Technician, Green Street Pharmacy

We use carshare vehicles to deliver mattresses and furniture to our customers. It is quick and convenient compared to typical rental trucks, and we like supporting the mission of Ithaca Carshare in reducing Ithaca’s car fleet.” – Joe Nolan, Home Green Home
