Expand Pogo Car Share Zone to Westmount and Inglewood
This petition had 77 supporters
Pogo is an amazing and affordable Edmonton car-share service that provides members with the ability to rent vehicles for short periods of time to do things such as run errands, commute to work or school, attend social activities, or take day trips. The company's goal is to give members access to a clean, well-maintained car on their own terms without the escalating costs of car ownership.
Part of Pogo's ease of use is members can pick up and drop off Pogo's vehicles on any street that permits parking within a Zone that includes Edmonton's central and surrounding neighbourhoods. This zone's northern edge is 108 Avenue.
With a lot of infill development occurring in Westmount and Inglewood, two communities just outside the Zone, there is pressure to provide adequate parking for the new residents without sacrificing precious green space.
A study from the Transportation Sustainability Research Center at UC Berkeley found that each car share vehicle removes up to eleven private cars off the road! If Westmount and Inglewood residents had access to Pogo's vehicles, it would let everyone have a place to park close to where they live without needing to pave over their yards.
Pogo has expressed interest to expand its Zone but wants assurances that any such Zone expansion would also lead to expansion in their number of members.
Please sign this petition to indicate that if Pogo expanded to include Westmount and Inglewood, you would consider using its service. For more info about Pogo visit https://pogocarshare.com/
Note that this petition has been organized by a Pogo member living in Inglewood. While Pogo has been notified of its existence and declared that such a petition would be a good method of gauging public interest, the petition is not officially affiliated with the company.
