SamTrans Launches Vehicle Sharing Program

The 18-month pilot project aims to create more efficient use of vehicle capacity.

SamTrans is launching a program that will allow member organizations to find and borrow vehicles at reasonable rates. 

The Peninsula Fleet Share Program, an 18-month pilot project, aims create more efficient use of vehicle capacity through a program that allows members to sign up for service, then search out the types and sizes of vehicles that meet their needs through an online registry.

The program is being funded through a combination of grant and matching funds.  

Lending organizations can use the program to offset the costs of owning large shuttles and vans by renting them out through the fleet sharing service.

Renters benefit from rates that are substantially lower than commercial rental services.

New members will be able to sign up free of charge during the introductory period, which ends June 28.
