Park City has partnered with UhaulCarShare to launch a car sharing program open to individuals, organizations, and businesses. UhaulCarShare owns and maintains all aspects of the program while the City provides covered parking spaces and limited marketing support.
UhaulCarShare launched the program with two vehicles, a Toyota Prius and a Ford F-150. Both vehicles are parked in covered parking at the China Bridge Parking structure in Swede Alley. The vehicles are located between levels NG and N1 on the north side of the structure.

There is no ongoing fee to be a member of the program and members only pay for vehicles as they are used, starting at $4.95 per hour plus mileage. Car share vehicles are rented by the hour and all costs of operation including fuel, insurance, vehicle maintenance, and 24/7 roadside assistance are covered. Users can reserve a car for as little as an hour or for up to three days.
For specific questions about the car share partnership with Park City, contact Celia Peterson, Environmental Sustainability Project Manager with Park City Municipal Corporation, at 435-615-5193.
About Car Sharing
Research shows that car sharing is great for the environment. Every UhaulCarShare car can replace up to 20 personally owned vehicles. Car sharing is a key factor in reducing our carbon footprint by reducing the amount of cars manufactured and reducing congestion on our roads. Car sharing is fast becoming a great environmental solution and alternative to car ownership.
