Enterprise Carshare Sackville
The Transportation for Tantramar Network in partnership with Enterprise Carshare have been working diligently to implement a carsharing service in Sackville. Starting March 1, 2014 community members will have the opportunity to purchase memberships and use the service. Memberships will be available online and at community membership drives.
This is a six-month pilot-project funded by Renaissance Sackville. The goal is to reach 50 active members, and to provide an opportunity for all Tantramar residents to learn more about this type of transportation.
This is the first carshare service in the province of New Brunswick and hopes to encourage more communities to adopt this form of transportation. Carsharing is a member-based service that is available to all qualified drivers in a community. Vehicles are accessible 24/7 at a self-serve location and supports community transportation, while providing affordable access to a vehicle. Carsharing reduces the number of vehicles on the road, improves land-use, and motivates residents to walk, cycle, and decrease dependence on fossil-fuels.
