Montpelier, here we come!
We’re very excited to announce that CarShare Vermont is expanding to Montpelier this April! After two years of grassroots community outreach, extensive market research, and much anticipation, we’re happy to be launching our first expansion project outside of Chittenden County.
We’ve heard from local residents, businesses, and community leaders alike that Montpelier is ready and eager to embrace car-sharing. This spring, in partnership with the Vermont Agency of Transportation and with the city’s support, we’re rolling out a two-year pilot project that will place two fuel-efficient vehicles in the downtown (exact locations are pending city approval). We’re confident that with your continued support, we’ll be able hit the ground running this spring!
Here are a few ways you can help:
- Become a CarShare Vermont member, and encourage your friends, neighbors, and colleagues to do the same. We’ll need a solid base of members that are ready to use our service as soon as we set up shop. If you’ve been thinking about ditching a car, go for it – we’ve got you covered!
- If you work in Montpelier, encourage your employer to set up a business membership this spring. CarShare Vermont can help businesses reduce work-related travel expenses, while providing an enticing employee benefit.
- Join our outreach team, and help us raise awareness and generate excitement about our service. We’ll need local volunteers to help table at community events, put up posters, knock on doors, post messages on Front Porch Forum, and generally help spread the word.
- Connect with CarShare Vermont on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and invite everyone in your social network to do the same. Leading up to the launch and beyond, we’ll use social media (as well as this email list) to share information, announce opportunities/events, and generally keep people in the loop.
Thank you in advance for all of your support to help make this pilot project a huge success! If you’d like to get involved, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (802) 861-2340.
