Grand River CarShare launches “Living With Less Car” course at Conestoga College
KITCHENER Grand River CarShare, Ontario's first carsharing co-operative, is going down a new road to spread its message of responsible car use. A sign of a dynamic new phase for Grand River CarShare and for car users in general, “Living with Less Car” will be offered as a continuing education course about how to survive in our society’s fast-changing transportation universe.
The course will start at Conestoga College - Doon Campus, on Tuesday, April 19. The course will run Tuesdays from 7pm-9pm.
Taught by CarShare director Taodhg Burns and featuring a variety of guest speakers, the course will show participants how to make the logical and societal transportation choices that are right for them, and yes, how to save a little money too. As a special feature of the course, students will be able to learn from one of the ten original members of Grand River CarShare, who still uses CarShare vehicles, 13 years after the co-op was founded.
The cost for the course is $99, which also happens to be the sign-up cost of the cheapest membership in Grand River CarShare. Anyone who takes the course is guaranteed to make their money back from the transportation savings they will learn to take advantage of in the course.
