Streetcar has cars parked in a few sites in Cambridge, the nearest is Park street car park. You can borrow one of the cars for as little as 30 minutes or as long as 6 months.They are reserved online or by phone, and can be collected and returned 24/7 using one of our high-tech smartcards.  There are also some vans if you need to move bulkier items. The cost of your usage is based on how long you have the car and how far you drive but unless you're a heavy car user, the annual cost of Streetcar will be dramatically less than owning a car and with lots of the hassle of car ownership removed. It is also possible that a nearer site for the shared car could be applied for.
