This bill exempts carsharing rentals from the State imposed $5 per day motor vehicle rental fee. The bill defines carsharing rentals as a passenger automobile that is rented without a driver for hourly use within, but not beyond, one calendar day. The purpose of this bill is to remove an impediment to the use of short-term passenger automobile rentals as an alternative and cost-efficient metropolitan transportation tool. Increased usage of carsharing rentals, particularly in urban areas, has the potential to reduce the use and ownership of personal automobiles. Consequently, carsharing rentals could have the effect of reducing traffic congestion, fuel consumption, and emissions. However, the State is currently inhibiting the growth of carsharing rentals through the imposition of a $5 fee per day motor vehicle rental fee, which is imposed on the first 28 days of all motor vehicle rentals. In application this means that a one-hour carsharing rental customer could have to pay a $5 State imposed fee for a rental bill that may otherwise be approximately $10. By exempting carsharing rentals from the State imposed $5 per day motor vehicle rental fee, the State can remove an impediment to the use of carsharing rentals as a convenient and cost-efficient transportation tool.
