MU to introduce car-sharing program

Tuesday, May 11, 2010 | 5:17 p.m. CDT

COLUMBIA — Starting this fall, MU students, faculty and staff need not have cars to do grocery shopping or run errands. They can rent WeCars instead.

MU will bring in a car sharing program by Enterprise Rent-a-Car called WeCar, where two hybrid vehicles and two sedans will be available on campus for rental. Members who pick the car up have to return it at the same location after use.

A shared vehicle can remove 15 to 20 cars from the road, according to an MU news release.

Membership is $35 per year plus an additional fee for each trip. Reservations for the vehicles can be made online.

Those ages 18 to 20 must have their own insurance.
