  • ROSECAR CAR SHARE
    ROSECAR CAR SHARE

    RoseCar is the first car sharing system developed for patients and their families by the Rose Association.

    Take a look at the routes covered in Rennes.

    The Rose Association was founded by patients and their families to support cancer patients, provide information and defend their rights.
    It receives no government funding. We need your donations so that we can continue to help you.

    With RoseCar, share more than just a journey!

    Company: RoseCar gives you a chance to meet and talk with other patients, care workers and supporters who are heading to the same hospital.

    Share and exchange: RoseCar helps create links between patients.

    Save money: RoseCar allows you to split the cost of travel and avoid using medical transport where possible.

    Environmentally friendly: RoseCar means fewer journeys, fewer cars on the road, fewer overcrowded hospital car parks, less pollution and less stress for everyone: patients, care workers and carers.

    A relaxed, environmentally-responsible solution: RoseCar provides an alternative to public transport, which is not always suitable for patients’ health or energy levels.

    Adapting to outpatient care requirements: RoseCar is a response to the increase in outpatient care, which has led to a higher number of hospital visits and more frequent journeys.

    Freeing up care workers: RoseCar allows care workers to attend to their many other responsibilities. By organising trips with patients via the platform, care workers can take it in turns to make trips to and from hospitals.
