Cal State Fullerton is planning to implement a new car-share program beginning in the fall that will allow students, faculty and staff to rent cars on campus to run errands in order to alleviate parking.

The cars will be provided through WeCar, a membership-based car-sharing program by Enterprise. Starting Aug. 20, the university will offer two mid-size sedans for use. The program is expected to aid commuter students but is also available to on-campus students.

“We believe that this will provide a great service to the students, faculty and staff members who carpool, bike or ride the train or bus to campus,” said Joe Ferrer, director of the university’s Parking and Transportation Services Office in a press release. “Through a personal membership with WeCar, campus members will be able to use a vehicle to run errands without having to drive their own vehicle to campus.”

The participation fee will be $35 annually and an hourly, daily or overnight charge, depending on the use. The rates include rental, fuel, damage waiver and liability. First-year Cal State Fullerton participants will receive a $35 credit.
