Many studies have demonstrated that the use of carsharing paired with public transit represents one of the best ways of reducing the number of cars in circulation. It also results in better health for commuters as they walk a bit more everyday. Furthermore, the need to reserve a car before using it leads to a more rational, practical use of cars.
CarShareHFX offers a brilliant alternative to expensive car ownership with self-serve access to clean, green, fuel-efficient vehicles, available 24/7/365. For the launching of the application and celebrating another partnership, CarShareHFX is waiving $40 towards any annual plan chosen.
