3.) Green Tip: UofL Car-share saves you & UofL money (get free driving credits)
Why drive your own car to campus or meetings when you can borrow ours? With UofL’s new Car-share program, you can reserve one of our fuel-efficient vehicles parked on campus online and use it for just $8/hour, including gas and insurance. UofL Car-share is a cheaper way to go to most one-day meetings and can also help make it easier to carpool, bus, bike or walk to campus. Join now for personal or professional use for only $10 (a one-time application fee) and earn $35 in free driving credits.
