UhaulCarShare (formerly "UCarShare")[1] is a for-profit carsharing service offered by U-Haul in nearly 40 cities in the United States.[2] Those with a Uhaul Car Share membership may have use of a car, billable by the hour or by the day. However, use is generally limited to three days at a time.[3] Most often, Uhaul Car Share vehicles are operated in communities with colleges and/or universities nearby. "The goal of [Uhaul] Car Share is to give people an alternative to owning second and third cars, and to increase the use of public transit."[4]

Uhaul Car Share's primary competitor is Zipcar (which, since 2007, includes the former Flexcar).[5][6]
