Sharing Updates

It’s been an exciting summer here at CCS. In May we were notified by our auto insurance carrier that our auto policy was not being renewed. No other carriers will write auto policies for car-sharing organizations in New York due in part to insurance laws.   

We were able to secure insurance for our vehicles thanks to the diligence of local broker Rose & Kiernan on the New York Automobile Plan, also known as the Risk Pool.

Our coverage is the same, but our insurance rates have increased by over 300%.  

That’s a whole lot of increase for us to bear, and we hope will be temporary. In the meantime, we hope you will support us in one or more of these ways: 

  • Making a tax-deductible donation on our website here
  • Referring friends to CarShare
  • Offering a business CarShare plan to your employees or suggesting it to your employer, church or other group
  • Sharing your experiences with CCS on review sites like Yelp, Google, Facebook, etc. 
  • Adopting a vehicle to clean and maintain
  • And of course… making reservations and using the cars!
