Community Car manages the maintenance so that members can simply drive.

Owning a car can be a huge hassle and a major expense as the bills for insurance, car loans, parking spaces, routine maintenance, and unanticipated repairs add up.


Carsharing is a great alternative for individuals who only need a car occasionally.  


In Madison, Community Car maintains a fleet of vehicles and parks the cars in designated spaces across the city.  Members reserve the cars by the hour and are covered by Community Car's insurance while they drive. 


As a Community Car member, you'll enjoy access to a car or truck on the occasions when you need one. You'll also be...


  • Saving money.
  • Pursuing a healthy active lifestyle.
  • Making friends on the bus or the bike trail.
  • Helping promote sustainable urban development.
