Businesses & Nonprofits

HOURCAR provides flexibility and mobility to businesses and nonprofits of all sizes. A hub near your workplace enables your staff to use more sustainable modes of transit for their commute, while knowing they have a car to use when they need one. We get your people to client meetings and off-site delivery points without the hassle and expense of mileage reimbursements, maintenance, repairs, parking, gas, insurance, and asset depreciation. We get your team moving without all the paperwork. Work smarter with HOURCAR.

Plans That Work for You

Businesses and Nonprofits can generate value with a plan that offers low hourly rates during regular business hours and a $40 Workday Max. Lower mileage costs extend your range, so you can get out of the cities or down to Rochester if you need to. Our fleet includes hatchbacks and pickups for making cargo runs, and damage fee waiver program (5 free drivers) protects you from expensive accidents. We know that every organization has unique goals and needs, so contact us to discuss how an HOURCAR plan can help get your team moving.
