On Tuesday, November 4 (which is election day in case you have forgotten), HOURCAR is helping its members vote. If you need to give an elderly neighbour, friend or relative a ride to the polls, grab an HOURCAR. If you are working a Get Out The Vote campaign, grab an HOURCAR. If you are serving as an election official or poll watcher, grab an HOURCAR.

Each car will have a map of the wards and precincts in its city and a list of local polling places, so vote early (but please, not often).

HOURCAR is so so solar

Sen. Amy Klobuchar and Saint Paul mayor Chris Coleman spoke today about HOURCAR as we unveiled the first solar-powered shared car in the world!

We're aggregating news on our home page, and pictures are posted below.

And our plug-in hybrid Prius.

Senator Klobuchar goes for a drive. As far as we know, she's the first congress member to drive a solar-powered plug-in hybrid, and definitely the first one in a solar-powered shared car (because it's the first one :)

Senator Klobuchar returns from her trip. HOURCAR's own Christopher rides shotgun.
