See these 5 fast facts on saving more when you carshare with Peg City Car Co-op.
Owning vs. carsharing
According to the Canadian Automobile Association’s Annual Driving Costs Report, the average cost of owning and operating a vehicle in Canada is $8,000 each year. To calculate the costs of owning your vehicle, use CAA’s driving cost calculator:
On average, our members spend about $1200 a year on carsharing.
All usage rates cover gas, insurance, parking and maintenance. We worry about winter tires and inevitable repairs or replacements.
Walk. Bike. Bus.
The majority of Peg City members use carsharing in place of owning a car. Living a car-free lifestyle often means walking, biking, and busing to limit vehicle use and save money.
As more people shift to active and alternate transportation methods, fewer cars are needed. This study found that carsharing can take 9 to 13 vehicles off the road for each carsharing vehicle in the fleet.
