The Quantum Delivery Program
The Quantum Delivery Program is a premium service that allows members to book a vehicle at any of our 50+ Quantum Stations in Kitchener, Waterloo, and Elmira.
With only 24 hours notice members can request one of our fleet types including; Matrix, Corolla, Prius C, Caravan, RAV4, Tacoma truck, or Transit Connect cargo van, to a Quantum Station of their choosing, optimizing both geographic accessibility and vehicle size.
This innovative program is the first of its kind in the Canadian carsharing sector and was originally launched through funding by the Ontario Trillium Foundation. The Quantum Delivery program helps Community CarShare better serve all neighbourhoods, especially neighbourhoods that do not yet have enough demand to support a conventional station.

Quantum – Premium Driveway Service Now Available!
In addition to serving you at Quantum Stations throughout Kitchener-Waterloo and Elmira, the co-op is adding a Driveway Delivery service to the Quantum program.
This new premium service means you can request a Quantum vehicle delivery directly to your driveway, if that is more convenient that your closest Quantum Station. To select this new service, choose ‘Quantum Driveway Delivery – Your Home Address’ when you are picking your delivery location.
At this time, Driveway Delivery is only available to houses where members reside.
Driveway Delivery costs an additional $10/booking, on top of the base $10 Quantum delivery fee.
Quantum booking cancellation charges have also been updated to align with the 24-hour notice period for bookings. The Member Manual reflects these pricing updates.
