Meet an exciting member of #yycSocEnt! They are at the forefront of the collaborative consumption movement!
As per: http://www.calgarycarshare.ca/
CarShare is quicker and more convenient than renting a car, cheaper and greener than owning, and allows you to do some things that are not possible to do by bike or on public transit.
Calgary CarShare maintains vehicles throughout the inner city which members can book online, which reduces the number of cars on the road and provides one piece of a less carbon-intensive transportation puzzle.
Car sharing is ideal for urbanites who want the convenience of a vehicle to run errands or go on a day trip, but don’t want the hassle or expense of owning a car. Calgary CarShare is a co-op, consisting of students, professionals and families, all interested in using cheap, energy-efficient modes of transportation. Our vehicles are stationed throughout the inner city to be rented to members by the hour, day, or half day at the click of a mouse or mobile. It’s a cheaper, greener and versatile alternative to vehicle ownership: take a Prius today, a minivan tomorrow, and we’ll take care of the maintenance.
