Interactive website connects would-be carpoolers on Denman, Hornby with main island

As part of implementing the Comox Valley sustainability strategy in the Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) electoral areas, the CVRD is supporting www.islandrideshare.com.

It's an interactive website that connects people in the Comox Valley and on Denman and Hornby Islands who want to carpool to save money and energy by sharing transportation to a destination.

“There are so many advantages to carpooling, and this website is an excellent way to make carpooling connections in specific communities,” said Bruce Jolliffe, director for Baynes Sound-Denman/Hornby Islands (Area A) and chair of the CVRD’s electoral area services committee.

“Using the interactive website is free, and allows you to limit your search to those carpools originating in your home community.”

For your convenience, you can link to the RideShare website at www.islandrideshare.com or you can find out about it and other environmentally friendly transportation initiatives through the CVRD website link at www.comoxvalleyrd.ca/TransitAlternatives.

The Island RideShare site was developed and is maintained through a collaborative partnership of Renewable Energy Denman Island, and the Hornby Island Community Economic Enhancement Corporation. Funding was provided by CVRD to enhance the site and expand its availability throughout the Comox Valley.

If you want to use your vehicle to carpool, you should check with an ICBC Autoplan broker to make sure you have the correct rating and insurance protection you and your passengers may need.
