How much does it cost? How long (or short) can I make a reservation?

Where is the car located on campus?
The HOURCAR is located in parking stall 19, just south of the main campus building and west of the new parking lot in a space with a “reserved for HOURCAR” sign.

I have a big project, will it fit in the car?
We hope so. The car is a Honda Element with wide-opening doors and can accommodate rather large materials.

Can I use any of the other HOURCARs I see around?
You can use any and all of the other HOURCARs you see around. These include cars in nearby neighborhoods and throughout the Twin Cities. Some of our cars even have daily rates available. See our locations page for more information.

I have more questions—where can I find answers?
