Nova Scotia Health Authority (NSHA) is working closely with CarShareHFX to offer our departments another transportation option that is easy on the budget and good for the environment.

CarShareHFX is Halifax’s first car sharing service offering a network of vehicles located throughout HRM available for an hourly rental of $2.25 + $0.23 per kilometre including the cost of gas and MacPass.

Advantages of CarShare

CarShareHFX provides a cost-effective transportation alternative to using personal cars or taxis for some trips. In some cases, using CarShare can save your department up to half the price of a taxi.
