January 22, 2016, marked the official launch of Share-There, a ride-sharing social enterprise. The concept comes from Sean and Michelle Morton (pictured in photo below).
Share-There was created to address some of the transportation woes on the Sunshine Coast, as well as add in the social benefits of the carpool in an electronic age.
Two great added features of the site are the event calendar and ticketing app. You can add your event to the event calendar and sell tickets through the Share-There Website, similar to other event ticketing sites such as EventBrite.com. Check out Event and Ticket Information for the easy-to-use directions.
The mission statement of Share-There says it all:
“We aim to reduce single occupancy vehicle use and build a stronger local community and economy.”
It is estimated 80-90% of the vehicles travelling between Sechelt and Gibsons each day only have ONE occupant. This is counterintuitive to the reputation we strive for : a more connected, environmentally conscious community.
Sunshine Coast – now’s it your turn. Sign up for Share-There and stop driving by yourself!
Congratulations again to Michelle and Sean!
