City of Philadelphia Reduces Fleet Size by 328 Vehicles Using Car Share Program

April 11, 2007

PHILADELPHIA, PA – Philadelphia is targeting commuters who want to save money and the environment. It allows drivers to share vehicles for a minimal cost, according to KSDK NewsChannel 5. The city of Philadelphia uses Car Share, a non-profit car rental company. Hundreds of inspectors needed cars to perform their duties, but they didn’t need them all the time. So, the city went to car share.

Philadelphia Fleet Manager Robert Fox says he was able to cut his fleet by 328 vehicles. Vehicle from Car Share can be rented for just under $8 an hour, which covers gas and insurance. Customers must pay nine cents for every mile driven.
