Car Co-op keeps space near the Ave.

Oak Bay council renewed the ongoing parking arrangement

The Victoria Car Share Co-operative will continue to have a free parking spot near Monterey Centre for two more years.

Oak Bay council renewed the ongoing arrangement at the Sept. 30 council meeting. The renewal allows the co-op to continue basing a vehicle there, for use by its members. The service allows paid members to access cars located throughout Victoria when needed, lessening or eliminating the need for car ownership.

Municipal clerk Loranne Hilton told council the arrangement has been ongoing for a number of years and needed to be renewed as the previous two-year agreement expires this month.
