Coming soon to St. Catharines!

Looking to free up some room in your garage? Want to help others do the same? If you strive to drive less but you still need to use a car on occasion, carsharing may be the right alternative for you to owning a personal vehicle or a great way to add a second family vehicle without actually having to buy one.

Operating in Kitchener-Waterloo since 1998, Community CarShare began as a grassroots co-operative, and in 2009, expanded to Hamilton. In 2013, we will be looking to expand again into St. Catharines.

Help bring carsharing to Niagara!

As a potential stakeholder in bringing Community CarShare to your area, you have the power to help initiate a massive green movement which has already taken off in other cities across Canada, such as Toronto, Vancouver, and more recently in Winnipeg. Soon St. Catharines and the Niagara Region can be a part of this growing trend of joining CarShare instead of owning a personal vehicle. Let’s make a positive change in the way we use transportation!

Community CarShare provides 24 hour, self-serve access to a fleet of cars that are placed within close proximity to your home or place of employment. This means that no matter where you are, you can still have the comfort of knowing you have access to a vehicle when you need one without the costs of ownership. This will allow you to reduce your ecological footprint by driving less and increase your vitality by using more active forms of transportation, all while saving money on transportation costs.

As a co-operative we care about improving the communities in which we operate by providing a sustainable transportation option for the future, and as a non-profit we strive to keep our rates low to save you money. We are member owned, so this means you will have a voice in how your CarShare is operated. In order to launch in a new service area we need 60 new members to supply the demand for an initial 3 car system. You can be one of the these people who helps to start it all and by telling a friend or two we can be off the ground in no time.

Please forward this information to anyone you know who may be interested bringing this service to the Niagara Region. Carsharing is one step in the right direction to being more sustainable and with a membership in Community CarShare, you’ll be on your way to greening your transportation habits while saving time and money.
