Getaround: Getaround is a car sharing community which helps people rent each other's cars. Renters have access to a large selection of vehicles, while car owners set their price, who can rent and when. Insurance is included with every rental. PSU students and employees can sign up for free when they join at www.getaround.com/@psu.

PSU is at the heart of the Car2Go service area. Car2Go offers one-way car sharing trips in the central city; 30% of their fleet are EVs, and the rest are Smart Cars.
