In partnership with the Vermont Agency of Transportation, and with support from the City of Montpelier, CarShare Vermont has embarked on a two-year pilot project to place two fuel-efficient vehicles in the downtown to serve residents, businesses, and commuters. You’ll now find CarShare cars located next to city hall and the Kellogg-Hubbard Library.
Since CarShare Vermont’s launch, over 50 Montpelier residents have joined CarShare Vermont and started to reap the financial, environmental, and social benefits of car sharing. This is a great start, and with your help we’re confident that this pilot project will be a huge success. To keep the positive momentum going, and to ensure that CarShare Vermont continues to grow and succeed in Montpelier, we need your help!
Here are a few ways you can get involved:
Become a CarShare Vermont member, and encourage your friends, neighbors, and colleagues to do the same. If you’ve been thinking about ditching a car, go for it – they’ve got you covered!
If you work in Montpelier, encourage your employer to set up a business membership. CarShare Vermont can help businesses reduce work-related travel expenses, while providing an enticing employee benefit.
Join our outreach team and help us raise awareness and generate excitement about our service. We need local volunteers to help staff tables at community events, put up posters, knock on doors, post messages on Front Porch Forum, and generally help spread the word.
Connect with CarShare Vermont on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and invite everyone in your social network to do the same. We use social media to share information, announce opportunities/events, and generally keep people in the loop.
