Capital CarShare. MY neighborhood car.
So my wife and I signed up for CCS today. And it is the coolest thing. It's easy to sign up as long as you have a good driving record. The key fob concept is awesome. Just remember to treat these cars right. We no longer have to rely on rides. Great business!!! And the girl that did the orientation and I apologise I didn't get her name. She was wonderful as well. Even showed us to the bus stop to go get Nanette the Kia Soul!!
Having a great time getting around in my Capital Car Share car in Rochester! “Garbage Plates” are delish!!
Love Capital CarShare and how so very helpful and convenient using their car especially during this cold winter season!! #staying warm
Capital CarShare is always a big help when i need to run some quick errands on a rainy weekend with the kiddos!!
Once again taken advantage of Capital CarShare by using it to meet up with my dad and grandpa to celebrate my birthday as well as my dads birthday by going out to dinner!! Love the convenience of getting out and about when it really counts!! #Libra's are the best #Dinner was delicious 😋
