Introducing NeighborCar®. The easiest, cheapest, coolest, shared car ownership service in the world.
(Well, at least in the Twin Cities.)

Money bag - save a bunch of money

NeighborCar is the next big thing in our “sharing economy.” Now multiple households can own and use a late model, environmentally friendly car, saving each owner up to $4,000 per year. Apartment and condo dwellers save on parking, too.

Get liberated! NeighborCar is a lease arrangement that gives you and your neighbors access to a car for those errands, destinations and times of day or night when public transportation isn’t practical or available. NeighborCar is a Twin Cities-based company, so service is always friendly and prompt.

We’re mobility experts. Sign-up and car purchasing is easy. Easy-to-use technology allows shared car owners to schedule use times and make their monthly auto and insurance payments.

Shared car ownership reduces traffic congestion and carbon dioxide emissions…the two most important missions of NeighborCar. The way we see it, sustainability and mitigating climate change starts with changing the way we use our resources. NeighborCar is a step in the right direction.
