Kootenay Carshare Cooperative is now offering a new casual membership! There is no $500 membership share purchase required with a casual membership, and gas and insurance are always included. The casual membership structure is perfect for people who are looking to use a vehicle on a temporary basis, or for a short period of time. This is ideal for those who are looking for access to our wheelchair van, or a secondary vehicle. The rates for a casual member are as follows. For an economy vehicle: $0.33/km, $3.00/hr, midsize vehicle: $0.36/km, $3.50/hr, large vehicle: $0.48/km, $5.00/hr. To become a casual member, fill out our online application at carsharecoop.ca under the Join tab. The Kootenay Carshare Cooperative was founded in 2001 when a group of Nelsonites decided they each no longer needed a vehicle, and now has branches in Nelson, Kaslo, Kimberley, Revelstoke, and Rossland.
