Car co-op service launched

TransLink and the Cooperative Auto Network have launched a car co-op service aimed at business customers called The Company Car. Businesses wanting to join the new service pay a one-time refundable fee.

What are the benefits?

For clients

It means low cost access to a car when you really need one – but not being saddled with the whole debt load when the need is low.
For the Environment

It means people drive less often and when they do drive, they do so in a very well-maintained car. This improves air quality and eliminates some non-point sources of pollution so the air shed and watershed are enhanced by car sharing.
For the Community

With car sharing, we have fewer cars in our communities. This means less noise, less congestion and less stress on green space (i.e. less threat of asphalting over an area for additional parking). Ultimately, fewer cars are impinging on space in the neighbourhood which fosters a more pedestrian-friendly place to live.

Please see Benefits of Car Sharing on the Co-operative Auto Network site for more information.
Personal use

Your employees/contract workers can register for personal access (and separate invoices) for a $50 (non-refundable) registration for each driver; they will be charged CAN Flex Rates for personal usage. See our CAN Frequently Asked Questions for CAN prices.

each of the Drivers can also use the cars for Personal Use

TransLink's Employer Pass Program

Clients of The Company Car are also eligible for TransLink's Employer Pass Program, which provides a 15% discount off monthly FareCards (Minimum 1 year commitment as an annual pass is issued). Now there's no need for your company/organization to administer this program – let us do that for you. For groups who never met the minimum 25 person requirement, through The Company Car all groups are eligible!
Permit parking

CAN Cars are permitted to park in any Permit Zone in Vancouver
