Vancouverites relying on car-sharing to get around town should prepare to pay a little more.
Evo Car Share announced a jump in rates starting March 3. The BCAA-owned car-sharing company cites increasing fuel and operation costs as the reason for the hike in rates.
"Price adjustments are a big deal to us," says Evo in a news release. "Our rates always include parking, fuel, insurance and unlimited kilometers."
This is the second time in eight years that the company has amended its rates.
Evo is also adding more cars to its fleet, more service areas, and new features such as radar that detects surrounding pedestrians, bicycles, and traffic, as well as additional services like round-trips.
Here is how much Evo car-sharing will cost effective March 3:
- Per-minute rate increase from $0.45 to $0.49
- Per-hour rate increase from $16.99 to $17.99
- Per-day rate increase from $99.99 to $104.99
- All-access fee increase from $1.00 to $1.25
Users travelling to the Vancouver International Airport will have to pay a new YVR Park'N Fly drop off fee of $5 starting March 15.
