Vancouver Car Share Companies

Car share has been a big hit even before ridesharing like Uber. Car2Go and Zipcar have been around for years. Many have said millennials are giving up owning a car but around the Greater Vancouver Regional District GVRD where housing prices are the least affordable in Canada, saving the average Canadian’s $275 a month car payment can go a long way to helping climb the property ladder. Car Share can bridge the gap between cycling, public transit, a taxi, and walking or other forms of active transport, without the need to rent a car for a whole period of 24 hours. The environmental benefits of going car-free, or being a single car family can make a big difference. Utilization rates for the assets of 2 cars can be ultra-low when it comes to a short commute and then a weekend at home.
