Peg City Car Co-op and Old Grace Housing Co-operative have teamed up to provide OGHC members with easy access to three Peg City vehicles.
Peg City Car Co-op is an innovative and successful Winnipeg carshare service.
Peg City members currently can book online the use over 30 vehicles located in and around central Winnipeg. (Click here to see current locations and here to learn more about Peg City.)
There are three Peg City vehicles 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.
Peg City member surveys show that:
- 91 per cent of members say they can book a car when they need one
- 88 per cent were satisfied with the cleanliness of the cars
- 97 per cent were satisfied with the overall experience
Peg City members never worry about
- buying insurance
- cleaning and washing
