UPDATE 13.05.24: Read the press release at: https://downtowncommunity.wordpress.com/2013/05/16/peg-city-car-co-op-doubling-their-fleet/
Peg city is doubling its fleet of fuel-efficient vehicles located around central Winnipeg neighbourhoods! The city’s first and only carshare is expanding its service further into Downtown as well as West Broadway, Corydon Village, and The University of Winnipeg.
Approaching its second anniversary, Peg City Car Co-op has expanded to include 8 cars serving over 140 members and counting! The expansion is all thanks to $66,000 raised from individual Manitobans who purchased investment shares in the local car co-op. Peg City’s continued goal is to reach a fleet of 11 cars, serving 400 members, by the end of 2014.
Launched in June 2011, Peg City provides Winnipeg residents with affordable, convenient access to shared vehicles on an hourly basis without the hassles and expense of individual car ownership. Families get needed flexibility without having to purchase a second household vehicle and businesses a cost effective option for employee travel. Peg City Car Co-op is committed to making it easy and affordable for Winnipeggers to “Sometimes, Drive.”
