Car share co-op celebrates 15 years

To celebrate Victoria Car Share offering free one-year memberships

The Victoria Car Share Co-operative, which lays claim to being first of its kind in North America, is celebrating its 15-year anniversary.

It was established in 1996 with one vehicle and a few friends, and now has more than 500 members and a fleet of 22 vehicles.

To mark the milestone, the co-op is hosting cake mob events at some vehicle locations throughout the coming month. It is also giving away 15 one-year casual memberships to eligible drivers. Enter the contest between Oct. 15 and Nov. 15 by submitting 100 words describing why you want to join the VCSC.

More information is available online at www.victoriacarshare.ca.

Our membership is growing with young professionals, families, and seniors,” said Andrew MacDonald, executive director. “People are quickly recognizing the financial and environmental benefits of car sharing.”
