The Kootenay Carshare Cooperative is a not-for-profit association legally incorporated to foster carsharing as an environmentally responsible transportation option. The Kootenay Carshare Coop began in 2001 when a group of friends decided they no longer all needed their own vehicles and decided to share! Following the lead of Modo in Vancouver the Kootenay Carshare Co-op was formed as the first rural carshare in the world!
