Island Carshare Co-op is excited to introduce our new project website to the Cortes Community.

We have been working with Kootenay Eco Society and Ester Strijbos from Cortes Tideline to adapt, lease, and share the successful rideshare template KES has maintained for many years.

On the cortesrideshare website there are two options:
• “On island" rides ie. Manson’s Landing to Squirrel Cove, Whaletown to Smelt Bay, Cortes Bay to Gorge Marina, etc.
• “Off Island” rides is for all other destinations: Victoria to Whaletown, Vancouver to Campbell River, Manson's Landing to Vancouver. etc.

As we are a community without local “on Island transit” this will offer an alternative to Cortes hitchhiking when reliable timing, weather etc. are an issue. No sign up is needed and the site is user friendly. Please have a look:

Island Carshare Co-op will be promoting a casual membership for $10. The funds will be dedicated to the Rideshare site 1,000 purchase/lease and yearly maintenance costs. Membership
purchase/Donations can also be made to IslandCarshare Co-op PO box 264 Whaletown, BC V0P 1Z0

As of Sunday the Rideshare board on the Tideline will be discontinued.
