To our valued members and supporters: Investment Shares are sold out.
We’re excited to announce that we are now SOLD OUT of all $600,000 in Investment Shares!
Thank you to our valued investors for making this sale a huge success. Your investment means we can continue to grow and diversify our fleet by adding more vehicle options – like spacious cargo vans! Our investment drive in 2019 allowed us to grow our fleet from 40 to 60 vehicles in 2020!
Your continued support in Peg City Car Co-op allowed us to grow from a carshare with 3 cars operating in 1 neighbourhood to 60 vehicles in 11 neighbourhoods. Your investment will help us bring carsharing to even more people. Our goal is to reach nearly 100 cars by 2023. That means more people will be walking, biking and busing for most of their transportation needs, reducing congestion and pollution in Winnipeg.
Watch your investment grow!
With few places to go as Manitoba shifts into code red, the Peg City crew brings you the staying home edition of our travel blog. We’ve all pitched in to showcase a little glimpse of something fun we are doing while we #stayhome and weather this storm. Enjoy!
As the folks behind curtain, we spend most of our waking hours obsessing over our fleet and ensuring that our members get to where they need to go. Typically the Where to go: blog would showcase the stories of our members (and staff) using our cars to travel around Manitoba, and beyond! But just as we were preparing our latest feature, cases started to climb in a big way. With the recent move to code red and people hunkering down we decided to look inward with our latest Where to go: stay home edition. Read on to learn about how the Peg City Car Co-op team is coping through our second lockdown!
Will Belford: Fleet Manager
We started getting the Saturday newspaper again. It’s nice to read something that isn’t on a screen. Especially when it’s local news. I recommend using a nice smooth pen to fill in the crossword. I also suggest cheating as much as you need to. The satisfaction of a filled puzzle is barely diminished by googling obscure clues! There is a crossword language, you’ll need a little help to decipher it.
We’ve also gathered a few new plant buddies. We’ve bought a couple, but we’ve also had some clippings shared by friends. Some plants are very hearty and can withstand lopping off a branch to make a little friend, but none are more prolific than the spider plant! The spider-lings can be planted directly in soil. If you have any spare shot glasses left over from your mixology degree, pop them in and watch as the roots begin to grow! It can be a lovely daily meditation to visit and inspect while you preen over the rest of your flora.
And I’ve finally had the opportunity to make soap! We already had most of the equipment needed – another offshoot of having time to organize the basement a bit- and yes, I already had the lab coat. After watching videos and finding recipes online, all that was left was to make the mold and mix up a batch. Olive oil is a great starter oil, because you can make a nice soap with only one ingredient. We opted to add some coconut oil, Vitamin E, and Bentonite clay. Scented it with peppermint essential oil, and some dried mint from this year’s garden. We have so much soap now! I’ve been giving it away at every opportunity. I can see this being a lifelong hobby.
Michelle Panting: Fleet Assistant
Hi, I’m Michelle, Peg City’s Fleet Assistant. I’ve been spending many cozy hours over the stove since the lockdown began. As one of my pandemic projects, I’ve been trying my hand at more vegan recipes. Sometimes I’ll invent vegan interpretations of traditional recipes. Last week I made a Bolognese sauce swapping out the butter and meat for vegan butter, red lentils, and jack fruit. This dish produces the deep, rich flavours my body’s been craving as the cold descends. The key to getting the flavours right is to leisurely assemble the ingredients over medium heat in a cast-iron skillet, then reduce over a long, low simmer, stirring occasionally.
Colby Deighton: Member Services Coordinator
I’m Colby, Member Services Coordinator for Peg City. Recently, my partner and I have revamped our COVID-EOs music videos! We us our weekends to make dorky musical mashups! This project started during the OG lockdown in March. It began with us singing songs on our couch for our families, who we couldn’t gather with over Easter and Mothers Day. We took the summer off to have socially distant friend hangs and meet my 8-month-old niece, while numbers were low (she was born days after the first lockdown began!). Alas, here we are again.
This project is an extension of our ever-expanding musical curiosity. We started with just us signing and an acoustic guitar. In our latest piece, we’ve expanded to include drums, bass, electric guitar, dual clarinets, tambourine and some snappy harmonies. The songs featured are covers, but all the music and video are recorded and edited by the two of us!
Enjoy! (Happy Birthday Greg.)
Philip Mikulec: Managing Director
Hello! I’m Philip, Peg City Car Co-op’s Managing Director, and fearless leader. When we first went into lockdown in March, I thought to myself, no problem I got this. As a card-carrying member of the I Don’t Need Anybody, Introverts Club, I figured I’d weather COVID with ease. To my surprise, cabin fever set in faster than COVID dies on a surface! I soon realized I’m going to need more than my introvert strengths to make it through. Learning from my hubris from round one, I’m more prepared than ever to deal with COVID round two! Out of the frying pan and into the fire, here we go!
One of the things I started to miss quickly during round one of lockdown was my commute to the office! It was nice to get out of the house, but as an all-year-round cyclist, it was also a great way to get exercise daily. With no more biking to and from the office, I needed to find new ways to move around. Lucky for me, I’ve got a 9-year old dog who’s as fit as a fiddle, and always raring to go (usually she’s carrying me)! I now tag along with my partner to get some much needed fresh air and exercise.
My partner and I have also taken to eating way more home-cooked meals. One of my most recent favourites is baking focaccia bread. Once baked, I cut the focaccia in half, cover it in garden-fresh pizza sauce, top it with a mound of mozzarella cheese, and then bake it a second time!
To cap off the night, I will usually cover myself in all the blankets we own, surround myself in candles, and read a book for at least an hour. It’s too easy to sink into a rhythm of binge-watching reality tv all night, but a steady diet of tv junk food can only get you so far!
Stay home, Stay Safe, Stay sane.
Thanks for reading folks! Feel free to share your lockdown self-care project with us on Facebook and Instagram using #pegcitycarcoop!
Why? Because we like you, that’s why.
From now until Jan 15th, 2022, add up to 2 new drivers to your Member or Member Plus account for $0!
We will waive their $25 registration fee + give you a $25 driving credit.
Email us at [email protected] with the subject line “Two Free Drivers”, and we’ll get you all set up.
One great perk of being a Member is that your account can have up to five drivers. Each person receives their own fob, and the account can be set up in a couple of ways. You can all have access to the same bookings, which makes pick up, drop off, and running errands with another person a breeze. You can also set your account so that each driver can only see and access their own individual bookings, which is a good option for drivers living in separate households – such as siblings, partners or parents – and you don’t necessarily need or want to share your booking info with them.
Worried about your roommate or brother-in-law causing damage to a Peg City car? You can join our Damage Pool for just $50/year, and ALL drivers on the account are covered! Read more about insurance, and the rights and responsibilities of members and additional drivers HERE.
Offer ends January 15th, 2022. Good for up to 2 new drivers. Maximum 5 drivers per member account. Casual accounts are not eligible for additional drivers perk.
Plus, receive a complementary PCCC Swag Bundle for each driver added!
For the month of November, we have been exploring the topic of damage here on the blog. Here is our Fleet Manager, Will Belford, with the low down on tracking damage.
Hi I’m Will, Fleet Manager here at Peg City Car Co-op. If you’ve been following the blog throughout November, you know that vehicle damage is a very important topic for us. It not only affects how the vehicles look, but how they function as well.
We’re wrapping up Damage Awareness Month, and hope our members feel informed and ready for the road ahead. Through this month we’ve offered some helpful winter driving tips, laid out the different insurance options that are available to members, and shared a pair of comics to address topics that help keep our cars (and our drivers) safe! Last but not least, today we are pulling back the curtain on how we track vehicle damage, and how you can help!
Carshare vehicles are used more vigorously than your average car, truck, or van. This is because there are different people behind the wheel every day, sometimes every few hours. Some people are experts with parking in small spots, while others may have less experience driving large vehicles. A good defense from incurring damage is preparation! If you have never driven a type of vehicle before, give it a quick once over to familiarize yourself. How far does the bumper stick out? Are the seat and mirrors adjusted properly? Does this vehicle feature a backup camera? We encourage defensive driving, staying alert and aware of all your surroundings, and always taking the weather and road conditions into account – this is hands down the best way to prevent damage from happening in the first place.
So what about damage caused by someone else? Inspecting and reporting damage to Peg City staff will mean you don’t get held responsible for something you didn’t do. The best time to inspect and report is before you begin driving.
After you make a booking, you’ll receive a confirmation email with all the details of your trip, as well as a short list of any damage on that car that we’re already aware of. Any preexisting scratches, dings, or dents will be noted by a numbered sticker on the car itself.
We’ve added window stickers and booklets in every car to remind you to Take 5 Before You Drive – the booklet will guide you through damage tracking and help troubleshoot common booking issues. Here’s our Fleet Manager, Will, installing them in our first AWD SUV, parked in the Exchange District.
When you arrive to pick up your ride, walk around the vehicle to check for anything new. If you spot any new damage that is larger than a credit card, and it does not have a numbered sticker, it needs to be reported.
You only need to report damage that doesn’t have a sticker or is not in the damage notes in your booking confirmation. Was this dent listed in the email? Is that one big scratch or two separate ones? We would rather hear about it twice than never hear about it at all.
If you happen to be the one to cause some damage, big or small, please let us know. If you are in a collision, or you are not sure if a vehicle is safe to drive, call us. We have staff on call 7am-midnight seven days a week.
Thank you for reading, and for helping to keep our fleet in tip-top shape.
This December, add 2 drivers for free and earn up to $50 in driving credit!
