A new program on campus this year will offer MU students and faculty the flexibility of renting a car from a campus lot for up to 24 hours.

With incoming freshmen required to live on campus, WeCar gives them the freedom to get around occasionally, without the financial burden of maintaining a car.

Two hybrid vehicles and two sedans will be available and will be parked on campus.

Membership is $35 a year. Rental cost is $8 an hour to rent a sedan and $9 for a hybrid.

WeCar is a partnership between the Missouri Students Association, Graduate Professional Council, Missouri Student Unions, MU Parking and Transport and the MU Sustainability Office.

“This program also supports MU’s sustainability initiatives to reduce our carbon footprint, as well as relieve congestion and parking demand on campus,” said Dr. Jeff Zeilenga, Assistant Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs.

WeCar is available to those over the age of 18. MU students under the age of 21 must be covered by their own primary liability coverage in excess of $300,000 and have a parent or guardian sign the consent form.
