Did you know that if you have a valid driver’s license you can join the Coast Car Co-op? Launched in 2014, the Sunshine Coast’s own car-sharing scheme offers multi-purpose vehicles to members as a convenient, affordable and sustainable alternative to traditional car ownership.
Whether it’s moving furniture or green waste, or for those times when a second car is needed to visit family or for conflicting work schedules, the Car Co-op helps Coasters get to where they need to be. have to go.
And, this month, the fleet is growing! On February 26, cooperative members will have access to a 2010 Ford Ranger with extended cab. The new vehicle – complete with jump seats for toddlers – will be parked near the Roberts Creek Library. The white Ford Ranger currently in Roberts Creek will be moved to Gibsons at Co-op spots across from Shaw Rd. at Sunnycrest Mall.
Now, with five vehicles in Sechelt, Roberts Creek and Gibsons, car sharing has never been easier. Multiple membership options provide climate-friendly and cost-effective alternatives for individuals, businesses and organizations.
“The Coast Car Co-op is a not-for-profit co-operative, with profits reinvested to fund the co-operative’s operations,” says Board Member Johan Stroman. “Adding a second truck to our fleet means members will have more options to choose the vehicle they need, where they need it. With our affordable pay-per-use rates, it’s the perfect time to join the co-op! »
Coasters are encouraged to become members of the cooperative and support this sensible business model based on community, democracy and stewardship.
