From a memo today to the tenants of MIP
Tenants of MIP,
The Community CarShare vehicle has officially moved into its new home here at McMaster Innovation Park. When you get the chance, take a look at the brand new Toyota Yaris with the Community CarShare logo in our parking lot.
In case you missed the first announcement, The CarShare program is a not-for-profit co-operative that allows members in the surrounding community to have access to a car on an occasional basis, without having to pay financing fees, interest, or gas. This system encourages people to walk, ride their bike or find other, greener alternative means of transportation, while allowing them the peace of mind knowing there is a car available for them to use if the need be.
By signing up for the corporate membership, your company will have access to not only the vehicle located here at MIP, but all other CarShare vehicles located in Southern Ontario (currently 6 others in Hamilton). By booking through the online directory, the vehicle is yours as a convenient and affordable means of transportation for your personnel.
This inexpensive service requires only a one time, fully refundable deposit of $700 and a membership fee of $20 per month which covers maintenance, insurance and other supplemental fees. The hourly rates for the service are as follows:
Per Hour – Weekdays (7am-11pm) $4 + 30¢/km
Per Hour – Weekends (5pm Friday – 11pm Sunday) $5 + 30¢/km
Per Hour – 11pm-7am $1 + 30¢/km
10 Hours – Weekday (up to 10 hours before 6pm) $20 + 30¢/km
24 Hours – Weekday (daily maximum) $30 + 30¢/km
24 Hours – Weekends (daily maximum) $40 + 30¢/km
Although the program doesn’t officially start until February 1st, we already have two tenants signed up for the program; get on board today!
