The thrill of cruising down the open road is surpassed only by the thrill of watching a chicken cross the open road, but not asking why. Saddle up for four-wheeled thrills with today’s Groupon: for $39, you get a car-share membership from Grand River CarShare (a $119 total value), with vehicles located throughout the Waterloo Region. The lifelong Simple Plan membership includes the following:
- Application fee
- $20 worth of driving credit <p>
A $20 extra fee for key deposit and membership loan is not included, and will be refunded upon resignation of your membership. Additional driving fees—including a charge of $9 per hour—apply with each car use and are not included in today’s deal.
A co-operative business dedicated to reducing carbon footprints while fostering a sense of community, Grand River CarShare stocks a fleet of well-maintained cars that can be accessed at numerous pickup points throughout Kitchener. The lifelong Simple Plan membership grants holders unlimited access to the brigade of engine-powered buggies for 365 days, including a recently acquired Honda Civic Hybrid. Occasional motor jockeys can reserve, pickup, and drop off their shared vehicles according to their individual schedules, perusing the online car locator for the coordinates of nearby automobiles. While additional driving fees apply with each car use, the car share system effectively circumvents the pitfalls inherent in car ownership such as mercurial gas prices, malfunctioning car parts, and paying for a car-walker while on vacation.
