For all those who don’t need a car at their door every day or who want to supplement their bus usage: maybe you just need a car, truck or van intermittently, for a green waste run, or even a hospital trip. Think of cutting down on your carbon footprint while you drop your vehicle costs by 50 per cent.

The Coast Car Co-op is celebrating its seventh year of operation and has just upgraded its fleet. New car tracking and billing hardware has just been installed in all five cars on the Coast to make the booking experience reliable and easier to use, and to ensure continuous service when those old 2G towers come down. We are prepared with upgraded hardware for many years to come.

We are happy to announce a new truck in the fleet courtesy of a generous donation by Sherry Hallson and Glenys Robison. A low-mileage 2009 white Ford Ranger will be based in Roberts Creek, just outside the library/reading room.

The Co-op is a true co-operative run by a board of directors elected by its members. Individual members pay a one-time fee of $400, totally refundable at the end of membership. Business members are also welcome.

There are two cars and a van in Gibsons, the truck in Roberts Creek and a sedan in Sechelt. Members also have access to Modo, with over 800 cars in Vancouver, Victoria, Nanaimo and Kelowna.

If you are a business who would like to help us grow, consider joining the Sunshine Coast Credit Union and Co-operators Insurance by sponsoring one of our cars. Check us out at More information:, 778-374-3092.
