One of the only rental car and car share services for hundreds of miles in West Texas says it will close.

Time Car announced in a press release it will shut down its Marfa location at the Marfa Contemporary art gallery - an extension of the Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center.

The company’s president Benny Jacobs says with Time Car leaving, the gallery will be able to use the extra space for arts education programs.

The company has been in Marfa since 2011 and still owns a number of other locations in Oklahoma City.
