We had a very exciting year. Thank you to our board, staff, investors and all of our members for supporting carsharing in Winnipeg!
In 2018, we expanded our network and grew from 26 vehicles in June to 32 by December! We added a few bigger vehicles to our fleet, including a cargo van, a second truck, and a third van.
We partnered with some wonderful local groups, like Bike Valet Winnipeg, Rainbow Trout Music Festival, and Synonym Art Consultation, to name a few. One of our cars is featured below in a custom art wrap for Synonym’s Wall to Wall mural festival. This dynamic art car will be on the road all throughout 2019 for our members to drive. An exciting opportunity came up for Peg City Car Co-op to once again offer investment shares – thanks to the Manitoba Community Enterprise Development Tax Credit Program – and we raised $200,000 to help us reach our goal of 50 vehicles by 2021. The future of carsharing in Winnipeg is looking mighty bright!
For our Members, we added more perks and benefits, like opportunities to earn driving credits, and even free concert tickets from our friends at the West End Cultural Centre. We are very excited to see what 2019 holds for us. We will be announcing the date for our Annual General Meeting soon, and we’ll be looking to add a few new faces to our board – sign up for our e-newsletter to stay in touch.
To all our Members, thank you for continuing to help us grow. If you know someone who is interested in carsharing, and you refer them to Peg City Car Co-op, you each receive a $25 driving credit. All they have to do is mention your name to us after they’ve signed up. If you’ve been thinking about joining, we would love to talk to you about it!
