Peg City Car Co-op offers two affordable and convenient options to join the carshare and members have two different price plans:
Option #1: Member
Members have full voting rights in the co-op, enjoy lower usage rates, and have access to member perks (listed below). Joining requires the purchase of a $500 refundable membership share. This is ideal for those who expect to use a vehicle 1-4 times a month.
Member+ is the same as above, except it gives our members an opportunity to access our lowest hourly rates (see image below). Requires a monthly subscription of $25/month. Member+ is optional and members must opt-in. Ideal for those who expect to use a vehicle 4 or more times a month.
Option #2: Casual Driver
Casual Drivers are for those who only need a car on occasion or are interested in trying carsharing without the membership fee. These drivers pay an annual fee of $50. They don’t have access to all member perks and pay a premium hourly price.
A $25 fee (per person) is used to process your application and obtain your driving history from Manitoba Public Insurance (MPI).
Rates are set on a per hour and per kilometre basis. Peg City Car Co-op covers all the costs of insurance, fuel, maintenance and permanent parking.
Please note:Additional fees may be applied in such cases as a late cancellation of a reservation, not immobilizing the vehicle, returning the vehicle late, leaving the interior of the car dirty, smoking in the vehicle, parking/traffic tickets, etc. Details of these fees are outlined in our member manual.
A fuel surcharge addresses unpredictable gas prices while keeping rates stable and fair and may be added to the per kilometre driving rate. The surcharge is calculated based on average gas prices in Winnipeg that month and is applied once the price of gas is above $1.20/litre. At that point, the surcharge increases by one cent for every 10 cent increase in the price of a litre of gas. For example, if the average price of gas in Winnipeg is $1.40/litre, the fuel surcharge would be $0.02 so the total cost would be $0.27/km.
Members and drivers can now protect themselves against having to pay the full insurance deductible in the case of any partial or at-fault damage/accidents caused to vehicles.
Buy-in to the damage pool is $40 annually. It will also cover the cost of any co-op related carshare fines (does not cover traffic/parking tickets).
