TORONTO, May 5 /CNW/ - AutoShare is excited that BixiToronto has
launched this week, and as part of our official welcome to this great
New Mobility option, we are offering Free BixiToronto memberships to
anyone who joins AutoShare by May 11th, 2011.
"We remember what it was like starting up, way back in 1998," says
AutoShare president Kevin McLaughlin "and we want to give our new
friends any support that we can. Bike sharing and car sharing go well
together - they both provide alternatives to owning and driving private
cars, and are part of a sustainable transportation system. Indeed,
Montreal, London, Paris - these great cities have been transformed by
the arrival of a program like Bixi. "
With AutoShare vehicles available within steps of over half the TTC's
stations, the day is not too far off when every TTC station will become
a 'transit hub', with multiple options like Bixi and electric
carsharing available to continue your trip in an environmentally
AutoShare will also be purchasing corporate memberships for the use of
its employees, and giving some free Bixi memberships to its existing
members via a facebook contest.
"We would also like to issue a challenge today to companies across
Toronto: Sign-up your staff for access to Bixi Toronto through their
corporate membership program. It's a great, low cost way to meet your
environmental commitments - and invest in your team."
AutoShare is Toronto's favourite alternative to owning a car. AutoShare
pioneered carsharing in Toronto beginning in 1998, and this
locally-owned company has grown to provide 24/7 self-serve access to
the greenest rental fleet in the city, serving over 10,000 individuals,
families and businesses.
