MUD’s Truck Share Program
MUD’s Truck Share has provided the Missoula community with a unique transportation alternative for over a decade. Use your bike, feet, and small vehicles for eco-friendly travel in the city; use our Toyota truck (and trailer!) when you occasionally need a larger vehicle. Shared trucks mean we still have the resources we need to move large items, but individuals aren’t burdened with the monetary and environmental costs associated with owning large vehicles.
*Please review the Truck Share Policy carefully before submitting your application. Be sure to note the appropriate and inappropriate uses and other conditions.
Access to the Truck Share is a benefit for qualifying MUD Members. However, there is a small usage fee that helps us with truck maintenance, fuel costs, and insurance costs.
Usage Fee: $5.00/hour & $0.55/mile*
*If you gas up the truck, MUD will deduct the gas cost from your total bill, provided you present a gas receipt when returning the truck.
