The Victoria Car Share Co-operative provides an alternative transportation option to the Greater Victoria Area as a proud part of the rapidly growing worldwide car sharing movement.
Since our beginning in 1996, we have grown steadily as Victorians have embraced car sharing as a cost-effective way of adding to their transportation options. Our fleet of 23 vehicles is shared by over 650 drivers and we are entirely self-sustaining through vehicle usage revenues. We continue to partner with other car sharing co-ops and transportation providers in Victoria and across Canada to offer more options to our Members.
With the rising economic and environmental cost of transportation, our organization is increasingly relevant. Demand for alternative transportation solutions will only increase as communities like ours search for more financially, environmentally and socially sustainable transportation options. Our Members, staff and Board of Directors are all committed to continued long-term growth, and we intend to play an important role in sustainable transportation options in the future.
If you are interested in volunteering with us, please see our volunteer site.
The Victoria Car Share Co-op will be a cornerstone of the sustainable transportation network in the Greater Victoria area. Our diverse and environmentally friendly vehicle fleet will be affordable and convenient to use. We will engage members, residents, businesses, organizations and local governments to maximize the positive impact of car sharing. The Victoria Car Share Co-op will become a recognized leader in the North American car sharing community.
The VCSC offers high quality and reliable car sharing services for residents, businesses and organizations throughout Greater Victoria. Through a cooperative model, the organization offers a practical, economical, and convenient alternative to private car ownership. With innovative partnerships, member involvement, and sustainable community development, the organization will achieve its vision.
