Leave your worries and car at home this semester and use one of eGo’s vehicles for shopping runs, late night laundry duty, or an interview! eGo CarShare is a local nonprofit carshare organization that lets you focus your attention on school without the hassles of car ownership like car payments, insurance, maintenance, parking fees, or even gas. As a member you have access to eGo vehicles located on the CU Boulder campus as well as our complete fleet of vehicles throughout Boulder and Denver. There are many locations around campus and near student housing to make grabbing a car quick and easy.
We also have a couple of trucks and a mini-van for your moving (stuff and people) needs and AWD vehicles with ski/bikes racks to safely get you to your mountain adventure.
Students save $$$ by using promo code CUWEB16 – apply with the promo code and your .edu email and have $25 driving credit added to your eGo CarShare account! We hope you’ll see how easy and affordable carsharing can be for you.
Carsharing is a more sustainable option of transport that has a well documented positive impact on public transportation, biking, walking, and reducing the number of personally owned vehicles. There are numerous studies by other round trip carsharing organizations, academics, and consultants documenting that every round trip carshare vehicle replaces 9-13 personal vehicles.
Whether you want to drive a hybrid or EV, get away in an all-wheel-drive vehicle or need a pickup truck to move, eGo has an affordable option for you!
