HOURCAR comes to Augsburg

Dec. 3, 2006

An HOURCAR hub has been established at Augsburg College for the convenience of the Augsburg community and surrounding neighborhoods. President Paul C. Pribbenow authorized funding to keep the hub active at Augsburg for the next three years to foster alternative transportation options for college faculty and staff, and to provide the service to nearby neighborhood citizens who might not otherwise have the option.

It is hoped that Augsburg faculty, staff and students will take advantage of this option to augment routine commuting via public transit. People who use public transit for their daily commute will have use of this car for campus business that requires a vehicle. Anyone who wishes to sign up for the program (as an individual member) can do so by going to: http://www.hourcar.org. Future talks with HOURCAR will lead to a special membership program for Augsburg Departments who wish to sign up as a group for a "campus business only" membership.
