How carsharing works

Carsharing works best when your routine trips to work or school can be made by bike, walking or transit – it’s really for those occasional trips for distant or time-sensitive errands, bulk purchasing, or social events that cars tend to work better for. Individuals, families and businesses can join Peg City Car Co-op for convenient and affordable access to a network of vehicles 24 hours a day – and only pay for what they use. This can save thousands of dollars per year over the cost and hassle of owning and operating a car. Carsharing provides all of the convenience with none of the hassle of ownership. Never ever (ever) worry about oil changes, or winter tires ever again.

Peg City vehicles have designated parking spots in various neighbourhoods. Members book the location they want online and pick it up from that spot. Their unique key fob gets them into the car. At the end of the booking, they return the car to the same parking spot. (Like a library book that you borrow and then return.) The carshare system logs the duration and distance driven to calculate the monthly billing.

We have on-call staff to answer any questions you have before, during or after your trip – and 24-hour road side assistance.

How much does it cost?

We have a few different rate plans and account types to suit any of your driving needs. Are you going away for the winter? Switch to our $0 per month plan at no cost for the month(s) you’re away. Most trips are around 25~35 KM in distance. At 3 or 4 hours, that works out to $31 for Casual, $26 for Member, and $18 on Plus plans. It often works out to the cost of a cab ride to your destination, except you’ll get the car both ways. Your fuel, maintenance and insurance are included.
