Sharing is Caring…About the Environment!
LAX CarShare arrives in West Hollywood
What do you mean you live in LA and you don't have a car? Believe
it or not, those people do exist and more of them are about to come out
of the closet (or unused garage) thanks to the people at LAXCarShare.
With cars located in and around Los Angeles including West Hollywood, this
company is out to prove failed predecessors wrong. That despite the greater
LA car culture reputation, there are thousands of people who would jump
at the change to rent a car for just $7 per hour which includes gas, insurance,
maintenance and roadside assistance and a mileage allotment of up to 180
miles a day.
How does it work? Simple. Just go to www.lacarshare.com, register as
a customer and once you've passed the financial and DMV screening process,
they send you a key fob and vehicle location data that gives you access
to a vehicle when you need it.
Right now the usual $25 membership fee is being waived through Labor
Day but another discount, of your first hour free has been extended to
the end of the year.
Research has shown that shared cars can remove up to 15 personal cars
off the road. Though some may call that a drop in the ocean when it comes
to LA road congestion but it's a welcome and impressive start. Having done
their homework, LAXCarShare knows that what the average consumer wants
in a rented car isn't so much a variety of models as much as they want
something clean, affordable and accessible. This is why their current fleet
consists of the very reliable and even adequately spacious Nissan Versa.
The process is also made easier with their Mac, PC and iPhone friendly
I have friends who live in other large cities, San Francisco, New York,
Chicago, etc. who have used similar car sharing services and absolutely
swear by them. Though a new company with great confidence and dedication
to making this program succeed, they haven't received the media attention
they deserve. Being the second most populace metropolitan area in
the country, it's about time this worked in Los Angeles. LAXCarShare’s
first West Hollywood vehicle location is at 901 Hancock (at Santa Monica
Boulevard), with additional locations to be added soon.
