Mobility will be easier for Beloit students, faculty
and staff this fall with the start of the WeCar
program.

The WeCar program is a national car share
program piloting on campus this year through
Beloit Student Congress funding. Director of
Student Activities Jennie Hartzheim said, “The
official program has not started yet, but we have
had a WeCar representative on campus for move-

with interested students and start spreading the
word.”

Student, faculty and staff can begin their
membership in the WeCar program by visiting
the Web site that will be launched once the

Cars can be checked out by the hour, day
or overnight.  There is an application fee for
faculty and staff ($10) that is waived for students.

driving credits—essentially starting them off

Rates are broken down into weekday and

Weekday hourly rate is $8; weekend hourly rate
is $9; weekday day rate $58; weekend day rate
$63; overnight weekday (6 p.m. to 8 a.m.) is $35;
overnight weekend (6 p.m. to 8 a.m.) is $40.

The program is expected to start up by the end
