Options for Cars (“Options”) is a non-profit car sharing co-operative in the GTA that is dedicated to providing reliable, environmentally conscious transportation for members without the costs or inconveniences associated with owning a car. Members enjoy low hourly rates with gas and insurance included in the pay-per-use fee structure. Options provides car sharing services to our members without collecting a profit. We simply cover operational expenses.
Since its launch in the fall of 2009, Options for Cars has grown to over 500 members across Toronto including near Queen St. E. and Parliament St., and at the Options for Homes condominium Heintzman Place located at Keele St. and Dundas St. W.
Options for Cars is part of the Options Group of Companies, a set of non-profit organizations based on the Options for Homes business model. The group includes the non-profit development consultant Options for Homes, and the community-financed green energy developer, Options for Green Energy.
Options for Cars members can also become members of the Co-operative for Options for Cars. Currently, co-operative membership is open to regular members of the car share service whose billings exceed $700 during the course of the past calendar year. Members of the co-operative can participate in member meetings and are eligible for election to the board of directors of the co-operative. Please contact us if this is of interest to you.
