To reduce the number of cars brought to campus, introduce sustainable transportation, provide a cost-effective alternative to car ownership, and to provide a great service to the local community, Luther has partnered up with UhaulCarShare to bring a car sharing program to campus.

Luther College students, faculty, and staff, along with Decorah community members, can drive self-service cars by the hour or day, 24/7. Gas, maintenance/roadside assistance, insurance and parking are all included. Use UhaulCarShare for errands, shuttling friends to the airport, shopping, or quick road trips any time of the day or night.

Luther College’s UHaulCarShare Program features a 2013 Nissan Cube located in the Library Parking lot that is open for rentals to anyone with an account. The car is available for rentals 24/7 at a rate of $4.95/hour plus $0.49/mile or for the entire day for $62. When the car is booked for an entire day it includes 180 miles free of charge. UHaulCarShare will only bill you for what you use. Those who use the car do not pay for gas or for insurance. All of these features are included at no extra charge.

Why Use UHaulCarShare?

  • No need for a car on campus. Leave the hassle and cost of vehicle maintenance up to us. We love tinkering with cars. (No more paying for parking, maintenance, or insurance!)
  • Low hourly rates. For the cost of chai tea latte and a danish you can be on your way anytime day or night. (Insurance, gas, 24/7 customer service and 24/7 roadside assistance are included in the low hourly rate!)
  • Convenience. We know you really just want to get in and go! No hassle, no fuss. Apply anytime and start driving one minute later. (24/7 access to a variety of clean, low-emission vehicles!)
