New Rates Starting October 1

Due to increasing operational and expansion costs, the Peg City Car Co-op board and staff have decided to increase rates — effective October 1. Current members were notified of this change via email in early August.

The new rates are posted here, but can all also be viewed with greater detail on our RATES page.

This June we celebrated our 3rd anniversary and our 300th member. We currently have 14 cars in rotation and are working on moving into St. Boniface in the near future. As a small, grassroots co-op, our steady growth and the ongoing support of our membership gives us great confidence that Peg City Car Co-op will continue to meet the needs of new members and new neighbourhoods.

As a co-op, we understand that part of our mandate is to provide the best service at the most affordable price for our members, while ensuring the long-term viability of the business. Since launching in 2011, we have made it a point to review our price structure on a regular basis and amend them as needed. For example, on May 1, 2013 we went from one rate option to three options (Member, Member+ and Casual Driver) to accommodate different transportation needs.

The past two years have seen an exciting growth in membership and our network of cars. With this experience has come the realization that our rates need to increase for long-term viability. In the future, we anticipate rates to remain relatively flat and anticipate any rate changes will only reflect increased costs of doing business.
