HOURCAR's Student Rate plan for undergraduates is catching fire. After all, it doesn't take a Ph.D. to see that using HOURCAR is smarter than keeping your own car on campus. Find HOURCARs near the U of M, at the University of St. Thomas and the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, and at Augsburg, Hamline, and Macalester Colleges. Remember, every membership covers gasoline, insurance, and parking.

HOURCAR is a program of the non-profit Neighborhood Energy Connection. The NEC pioneered car sharing in Minnesota in 2005. HOURCAR fits the NEC’s mission of providing tools for energy-efficient living.

HOURCAR is similar to other car sharing programs throughout the United States like: Zip Car (ZipCar), Car2Go, City Carshare, and U Car Share.
