About City CarShare
City CarShare (CCS) is a Bay Area nonprofit that provides convenient, affordable access to shared cars in order to reduce individual car ownership and usage. With a mission to improve the environment and quality of life in our cities, City CarShare continually strives to make their service so convenient, so reliable, and so affordable that people will prefer using a CCS car to owning their own. In doing so, CCS members are reducing traffic, parking problems, and dependence on oil–while promoting cleaner air, quieter streets, and more open space. For more information visit citycarshare.org.
