Beginning in fall 2014, UhaulCarShare will place a 2012 Toyota Prius hybrid on campus.  This brand-new vehicle will be located in front of the Sudakoff Center, in the most southeast parking spot.  Access to this vehicle will be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to the NCF community.

"UhaulCarShare allows individuals the flexibility and freedom a car provides while eliminating the financial burden of owning a car," stated Mariah Reid, program director, UhaulCarShare. "In addition, the service provides peace of mind?knowing the insurance, maintenance, reserved parking spots and 24/7 roadside assistance are included in the rates."

Members will be able to rent cars on an as-needed basis. Drivers as young as 18 can sign up online, reserve a car and use it for as little as $4.95 an hour, allowing individuals to maintain a sustainable lifestyle in one cost-effective and convenient package.

For a short time only, new members will be able to receive $10 in credits by entering the code NCF2014 to your new UhaulCarShare account! To learn more, please visit www.uhaulcarshare.com
