Halifax Green Cohousing Initiative is a seedling group in Halifax, Nova Scotia just beginning the process of building a group and finding land in the urban core of the city. One of our goals is to share some vehicles. There is a well developed system of car share operations in Canada and in the USA. If you google "car share" you well get many leads.

I'm very interested in following this thread of messages
Good luck.

Hello Everyone:

I am a member of the Nevada City Cohousing community which is currently under construction in Nevada City, CA. First move-ins are scheduled in December! Yeah!

The topic of a shared vehicle has come up and is of interest to several members of the community. My husband has a mini van which would be great for this purpose, however, we are wondering how the shared vehicle "arrangement" works in any established communities who have one. For example, who owns the vehicle and how is insurance and maintenance handled?

If anyone has insight into an arrangement which works well in your community, please let me know.

Thanks in advance for any advice.
