Victoria, B.C. — Just in time for the long weekend, Evo Car Share is introducing its fleet of 80 sustainable vehicles to Victoria, B.C. with the launch of Evo Victoria, beginning Aug. 1.
As the province’s restart plan continues to strive towards bringing people back together, Evo, created by parent company BCAA is providing an alternative, car-sharing mode of transport to Victoria.
Dave Wharf, Evo’s Senior Manager of Business Operations, grew up in Victoria and says he is excited by the amount of local excitement around Evo Car Share.
“We’re thrilled that Victorians can now stay mobile with Evo. We’ve already seen enormous excitement and hundreds of locals signing up before launch.”
Warf says the car-sharing company will help reduce Victoria’s carbon footprint for the months and years ahead.
“Data shows that every Evo removes an average of nine personal vehicles from the road,” says Wharf.
Starting with 80 of the latest Toyota Prius low-emission hybrids, Evo Members in Victoria will be able to pick up and drop off an Evo anywhere within a 20-square-kilometre downtown Home Zone, or at special satellites zones at University of Victoria as well as Camosun College’s Lansdowne campus.
Evo also provides free parking at most meters and in designated parkade spots, as well as on the street in residential areas.
To access Evo’s services, members can use a smartphone app or tap a membership card for quick access to the company’ shared fleet of hybrid vehicles.
Evo Car Share is open to everyone with a drivers’ license and two years of driving history.
