Peg City and Old Grace offer members low-cost, high-quality carshare

Peg City Car Co-op and Old Grace Housing Co-operative have teamed up to provide OGHC members with easy access to two Peg City cars and a $75-per-member Peg City driving credit.

Peg City Car Co-op is an innovative and successful Winnipeg carshare service.

Peg City members currently can book online the use of over 20 cars located in and around central Winnipeg. (Click here to see current locations and here to learn more about Peg City.)

sometimesdrive2016The number of cars and locations is continually expanding. And when Old Grace Housing Co-op opens, there will be two new Peg City cars on the OGHC site. Cars can be booked online, and picked up and returned at any time of day.

The benefits of carsharing are significant.

According to the Canadian Automobile Association, the average cost of owning and operating a mid-sized Camry LE in 2012, depending on distance driven, was between $9,142.12 and $13,654.12. (This figure does not include monthly parking fees.) You can use the CAA’s cost-calculator  to determine the average cost of running your car.

By comparison, Peg City members spend about $1,200 a year on carsharing.
