At Spud, we’re all about sustainability, and delivering groceries to many homes in one truck (or trike!), on a route optimized for fuel efficiency, is a huge part of that. And if you’re getting groceries delivered, that’s just one more reason you might not need to own a car anymore. This is why we’re so proud to be partners with Evo Car Share.
For many people in Canada, living without a car is unimaginable. But if you live in a city, like, say, Vancouver, owning a car can be more of a hassle than a convenience. There are all the associated costs (gas and parking, to name a few), the constant struggle to find parking, the environmental concerns, worrying about the possibility of break-ins – plus, wouldn’t you be healthier and fitter if you walked more often, or commuted by bike?
With this in mind, it’s no surprise that growing numbers of people are choosing to give up their cars. Especially since now not owning a car doesn’t mean not being able to drive to mountains to snowboard, or to the beach for a bike ride along the seawall. Now all you need is an Evo Membership.
If you haven’t heard of Evo before, it’s a car share made for BC. Although there are many car share options in town, here’s why Evo is hands down our favourite.
- Flexibility – It gets you from here to there with room for your friends. You don’t have to leave an Evo in the same place you picked it up. You can park it (for free!) in any Evo-designated, residential, or permit only spots in the home area.
- Eco-Friendly – All Evos are Toyota Prius hybrids, meaning they’re clean, powerful and fuel-efficient. And as a bonus, they re-charge on the go, so they never need to be plugged in.
- Space – Evos can seat five people – yes, full grown adults, I tested – but if you need to haul stuff, not friends, the back seats can flatten out for more storage. Plus each Evo has 2
twoThule bike racks, and can hold up to 4 pairs of skis or 2 snowboards as well.
When you do need to drive – whether it’s to the Grouse Grind or to pick up that vintage bookshelf you bought on Craigslist – Evo is clearly the best choice. And since we’re bringing you your groceries, you can use your Evo minutes for something more fun.
