Linfield College and U Car Share® have joined efforts to provide a low cost car sharing option to Linfield students, faculty and staff, as well as any other member of the U Car Share® program.

How it Works
Anyone 18 years of age and up can leave their car at home and use a car share vehicle on campus, all you have to do is join online at www.ucarshare.com. After a quick driving record check you will receive your member card in the mail and now you are all set to go!!
Join - You only pay once with U Car Share®, with a low one-time membership fee is just $25.00. There are no annual fees and no deposit necessary. Go online to www.ucarshare.com to complete the online application. Drivers 18 years of age and up are eligible.
Reserve - the online reservation system will show which vehicles are available. Reserve days in advance or just a few minutes before needing an available car.
Drive - Upon arriving at the vehicle, members enter a PIN and the doors will unlock. Keys are available inside the car. When done with a reservation, members return the vehicle to the same spot and put the key back in the secure key location and exit the vehicle.
