UhaulCarShare program arrives at UNCA

Press Release

The UhaulCarShare program is now offered on the UNC Asheville campus, with two vehicles available to reserve at an hourly or daily rate by students, faculty, staff and visitors to campus.

The addition of the two UhaulCarShare cars, which have dedicated parking spots in front of Brown Hall, represent a new transportation option, bringing access to a car without the expense of purchasing, storing, and maintaining a personal vehicle.

There also are three cars with dedicated parking spots in downtown Asheville that are available to members of the program. There is no fee to become a member and enrollment can be done online at www.uhaulcarshare.com. Members must be at least 18 years of age with valid driver license and credit card. Once approved, members can reserve a car online, enter the car and start it with an access code. Each reservation includes insurance, roadside assistance and the member will only pay for the time and miles used.

The Office of Public Safety at UNC Asheville has partnered with the City of Asheville and U-Haul to bring this program to campus.
