OP-ED: Carshare Nonprofits are at Risk of Disappearing in New York State

  • Date: 04/28/2023

Carshares across New York are facing a crisis in securing auto insurance which threatens their ability to operate.

Carshares are membership-based services that provide 24/7 access to a fleet of vehicles stationed throughout a community for their members to drive. They’re different from car rentals, because they’re used for local trips by members who can’t afford or choose not to buy their own vehicle. They’re also different from ridesharing services like Uber or Lyft, as members collectively share the cars through a membership system and drive the cars themselves.
