Want to Host an HOURCAR?

HOURCAR® is growing. Join the action by hosting an HOURCAR hub.

Why should I host an Hourcar?

  • Drive potential customers and business to your location. (Pun intended!)
  • Building residents, employees and neighbors love on-site HOURCARs
  • Demonstrate your community involvement and support of sustainable transit in the Twin Cities

How does it work?

It’s simple: the selected parking space is reserved exclusively for HOURCAR with a sign.  The HOURCAR will always be parked in that space unless it is in use by an Hourcar member.  HOURCAR manages the vehicle, the drivers, snow removal and more—you needn’t do anything but provide the parking spot.

What makes for a great parking space?

  • No-cost or low-cost
  • Must be publicly accessible 24-hours/day
  • Visible from the street (ideal but not required)
  • Located in an area with relatively high population density and near public transit

I’m interested. What’s next?

“With HOURCAR, we don’t have to pay for insurance and gas – it turns out to be far less expensive than owning a car.”

“If you want the convenience of a car without the responsibility that comes with owning a car – HOURCAR is a great choice.”

“It’s nice to have options – we can reserve a truck to run to the furniture store or a hatchback for a large grocery haul or a trip to the dog park.”

“I use HOURCAR to help the Minneapolis Art Lending Library safely move artists work. It’s a great option for budget-tight organizations”
