What is the LyonShare?

The LyonShare project is a new addition to the fleet program this academic year. It is modeled around the popular Zip Car rental program.

The college purchased a new 2008 Honda Civic Hybrid in addition to the normal fleet vehicles.

The LyonShare is to be used almost like a rental car. But keep in mind that the rules & regulations are formatted from the fleet program, for instance, you may only travel up to 500 miles away from campus and if there is damage to the vehicle, you must report it immediately. The things that make the new program different is the vehicle can be used for personal use, individual use and for a fee.

So, if you want to go to the mall and complete your sister's birthday shopping....go ahead.
If you need to get to a doctor's appointment and your car is in the shop....go ahead.
If you want to pick up a friend at the airport and you don't have a car on campus....go ahead.

What is needed to be able to participate in the LyonShare program is:
Become a fleet certified driver
A credit card/debit card (Visa or MasterCard)
Fill out the application for the program
Pay for application fee ($25.00)
Pay for the annual fee ($50.00)

After the criteria is met, you are all set to make your reservation!

The fee's to use the vehicle are:
Hourly Rate $7.00
Daily Rate $55.00

So go ahead, give us a call (or email) for use of our new LyonShare vehicle! We look forward to hearing from you!
