CarShare by Enterprise
This program offers 24/7 access to hourly, daily, and overnight rentals. CarShare allows members to maintain the benefits of a personal car while only paying for the vehicle when it is being used. Car rentals start at $8 an hour. Fuel, basic physical damage to the vehicle and state-required liability protection are included in the standard rate plan.
Try searching Oberlin Classifieds for students and community members who may be travelling into Cleveland, frequently offered for nominal fees (or trades). If you cannot find an offered ride, try posting a request for a ride or to borrow a car.
