Age Friendly image

AARP Vermont and CarShare Vermont are partnering to offer AARP members a special deal when applying for a Car Share membership – they are waiving the $30 application fee! Cars are available throughout Burlington and Winooski, VT.

Living in Vermont, everyone needs a car sometimes, but you don’t have to own one (or more) to enjoy the convenience of driving. When you join CarShare Vermont, you gain 24/7 access to our neighborhood-based fleet of vehicles. Grab a Prius for an hour to run some errands, take a Subaru to the mountain for the day, or help a friend move with our pickup truck or mini-van. Whenever you need to drive, reserve the vehicle of your choice near you, get in, and go. When you’re done, return it to its parking spot and be on your merry way. Leave the rest to us—gas, insurance, parking, roadside assistance, bike racks, snow tires, and more—it’s all included.

As they age, more and more Vermonters are letting go of their cars in favor of public transit, walking, etc. At the same time many retirees are moving to more urban settings where they rarely need a car. CarShare Vermont gives residents the freedom to drive when they have to, and to walk, bike, or take the bus when they don’t.

Car ownership can be a pain. Repairs, maintenance, and shoveling snow—we spend a lot of time, energy, and money caring for cars that sit parked most of the time. CarShare Vermont eliminates the hassles of owning a car without compromising convenience. With a choice of vehicles near your home or work, it’s easy to get a car when you need one. When you finish your trip, just park it, lock it, and walk away; we’ll take care of the rest.

And when you become a CarShare Vermont member, you join a community of fun-loving, practical, and courageous people and organizations that are saving money, making our community more liveable, and improving the environment.
