UhaulCarShare, the City of Asheville and the University of North Carolina Asheville (UNC Asheville) are partnering up to bring North America’s most advanced car-sharing service to Asheville.
“UhaulCarShare allows individuals the flexibility and freedom a car provides while eliminating the financial burden of owning a car,” stated Mariah Reid, program director, UhaulCarShare. “In addition, the service provides peace of mind knowing the insurance, maintenance, reserved parking spots and 24/7 roadside assistance are included in the rates.”
Vehicles include two Ford C-Max Hybrids and one Nissan Cube. Learn how to reserve a UhaulCarShare vehicle.

“This is another great example of what can be achieved through strategic public/private partnerships,” said Mayor Esther Manheimer. “Combined with Asheville’s ART routes, ever-growing bike lanes, sidewalks and greenways, a car-sharing program has the potential to further enhance the city’s sustainability initiatives realized through more efficient uses of traditional transportation.”

UhaulCarShare meets the needs of any individual who occasionally needs a car, while being sensitive to the surrounding community and environment. Car sharing reduces the demand for parking and promotes greater sustainability while enabling individuals to retain their mobility.
Research shows that car sharing is beneficial for the environment and increases awareness of the need for eco-friendly driving habits. Every UhaulCarShare vehicle can replace up to 20 personally owned vehicles. Car sharing is a key factor in reducing our carbon footprint by reducing the number of cars manufactured, and congestion on our roads. Car sharing is quickly becoming an environmental solution and alternative to car ownership. UhaulCarShare members have access to a program backed by years of U-Haul experience and customer service.
