CarShare launches first three vehicles

News Sep 25, 2009 Ancaster News

Hamilton CarShare has launched its first three vehicles after successfully signing up more than 50 members over the spring and summer.

Hamilton’s first three CarShare vehicles will be parked in locations provided by the City of Hamilton and the First Unitarian Church. The initial three locations are: City of Hamilton parking lot at King and Bay; City of Hamilton parking lot at King and Locke; and at the First Unitarian Church, 170 Dundurn St. S.

Members of Hamilton CarShare were able to reserve the vehicles after the conclusion of the launch event and barbecue, where Mayor Fred Eisenberger, Ward 1 Councillor Brian McHattie, and Ward 2 Councillor Bob Bratina helped to officially launch the three carshare vehicles —two Toyota Yarises and a Mazda 5.

"Hamilton CarShare is fortunate to have such a warm welcome from the people of Hamilton," Jason Hammond, president of the carsharing co-operative, said. "We look forward to giving our members the transportation options they need to reduce their carbon emissions, hassles, and expenses."

Hamilton CarShare is a non-profit cooperative which provides 24-hour, self-serve access to its fleet of three vehicles. Reservations for CarShare vehicles can be made for as little as 30 minutes, or as long as needed. Coop members are billed monthly for insurance and vehicle use, and gas and maintenance costs are included in the co-op’s rates. The three cars launched today join an existing fleet of 12 cars located in Waterloo Region where the co-operative operates as Grand River CarShare.
