Peg City Car Co-op supplements a lifestyle of living without cars – by providing occasional access without the regular hassle of owning them. It is no coincidence then that we launched on Bike To Work Day, June 24th 2011. Now every day can be Bike to Work Day in Winnipeg.
Join us for the “official” launch of Peg City Car Co-op at 9 a.m. this Friday morning, June 24th! We’ll be munching on pastries courtesy of Canada Safeway, cutting ribbons, showing off our new logo and decals, and saying a few words. Find us at the carshare parking spot at the far west end of the Safeway parking lot at River & Osborne – close to River Ave and Norquay St.
On your way to work? Bike by between 6:30-9:00 a.m. and stop for a coffee at the Bike to Work Day “Pit Stop” we’re co-hosting with CAA Manitoba at the corner of River & Osborne.

To address our members’ longer term needs, such as a full weekend or week, we have partnered with a local car rental company. Peg City Car Co-op members can now receive a 15% discount on car rentals from Winnipeg U-Drive. Just ask for Matthew Schwartz, Branch Manager, at their location at 222 Pembina Hwy (just south of Osborne Village) and provide him with your member number to get the discount. It’s that simple! And the offer is good at any of their three locations across Winnipeg.
It’s official! Peg City Car Co-op is operational. In fact, one member family booked a car this morning, fittingly on Clean Air Day (June 8th), to go to a greenhouse. Calling all members – you can start booking cars if you’ve completed your orientation session.
