New vehicles & Locations!

McTruckin’

photo 1 2Hooray, the Cavalry (or at least that’s what we’re calling our new Ford F150) has arrived! The green truck at McGuckin’s has faithfully done duty hauling loads of mulch and garden supplies and helping lots of people move throughout the past four years. But our Green Machine is ready for retirement. The new F150 has a deeper 6.6 ft bed and plenty of engine to meet your hauling needs. So if you or your friends need to move this season, ride your handy red bike over to the B-cycle station at The Village shopping center and make quick work of your move. With seating capacity for 5, you can bring lots of helpers with you!

Focus on the Paramita Campus

Last month we bought a Chevy Sonic, this month we bought a Ford Focus. Our new Ford Focus is going to live at lot #106 - the Naropa Paramita Campus. You won’t be able to miss the new hatchback driving around town, the color is “race red.” Just don’t take it to the drag track!

We can’t quite decide which new vehicle we like better. Do you have a preference? If so, let us know by taking our vehicle survey, shooting us an email at info@carshare.org, or posting to ourFacebook.

 

Fraiser Meadows – Foothills & Baseline

We have an exciting new partnership and parking location at Frasier Meadows near Foothills and Baseline in Boulder. We are delighted to bring shared mobility to the residents of Frasier Meadows and the surrounding neighborhood. When we heard about the tremendous flooding Frasier Meadows endured in September, we wanted to help out as best we could. So we moved a car to their campus to help meet the mobility needs of residents who had lost their vehicles in the flood. For the month of November, the hourly and daily rates for this new location will be discounted. In January we will evaluate if the location is viable. You can find the car listed as Vehicle #128 in our reservation system. If you live nearby, please try out the location. The more reservations there are, the more likely we are to keep a vehicle there long-term!

Drive Safe Tip: Blind Spots

Vehicle Blind spotsThis is one of those safety precautions that takes next to zero effort to carry out, but that almost no one knows about. Blind spots can actually be put into full view of your side mirrors, provided that these mirrors are adjusted to contain no part of your own car. Just angle them away from you until the point where your car is no longer visible in either one. That way there’s no overlap between the side mirrors and the rearview mirror, and any car passing you on either side will remain in at least one of your mirrors until it enters your field of vision. Astounding!
