I¹m a member of a cohousing community which which is currently under construction in Nevada City, CA. We¹ll move in in the late summer and fall of this year. We are interested in information about sharing vehicles. Have any of the communities out there purchased vehicles as a group? Are there small groups of people who are formally sharing vehicles? We are specifically interested in: * how vehicles are owned and insured. * Has anyone formed an LLC or something to own vehicles? Would that be appropriate? * how do people pay for use?
I am part of a car co-op here in Eugene originally started by a collection of current & former members from several intentional communities around town. We have 9 drivers and 1 car, which we run on biodiesel. We formed a cooperative corporation to hold title, and we have insurance through a regular company. Each of us pays a $400 buy-in (refundable if a member leaves and has their share purchased by an incoming member), $20/month for insurance, and 30 cents/mile including fuel. Since we are scattered across town, we sign out the car using our website. See more info at biocarshare.org.
