Best Resource for the Carless

Flexcar

Staff Pick

For those who’d like to give up their cars full-time — with the option of having some wheels to borrow for grocery shopping, picking up furniture or making a quick day trip — FLEXCAR can make that dream a reality. For as little as $6 per hour, you can rent one of 100 fully insured vehicles (including hybrids, SUVs, pickup trucks and even a Mini convertible) from locations across the city and return it when you’re done. There’s none of the hassle that comes with the lines and paperwork at a traditional car-rental place. What’s more, Flexcar’s $35 annual membership fee is waived in subsequent years if you use the service just twice in 12 months. And because Flexcar’s fleet averages 30 miles per gallon, and because all of its cars are Ultra Low Emission Vehicles, borrowing from Flexcar is good for Atlanta’s crummy air, too.

Editor's note: A previous version of this article incorrectly stated the number of vehicles in Flexcar's fleet.
