CarShareVT Logo

Champlain College, CATMA and CarShare Vermont are committed to reducing the impact of cars on the hill and around town without cramping your lifestyle. We've teamed up to locate a CarShare Vermont car on campus and cover the cost of your annual membership fee-a $150 value! Now, it's easier than ever to give car-sharing a try.

Since 2008, CarShare Vermont has been on a mission to help people get around with fewer cars. They've got a network of vehicles parked in convenient spots all over town that you can use by the hour or day whenever you need to drive. Shopping, meetings, weekend jaunts—CarShare Vermont is an easy and affordable alternative to owning a car. Learn more and apply at
