Car share company Evo has expanded its service to three prominent locations in Burnaby.
The company will be adding cars at BCIT, Metrotown and SFU Burnaby, according to a press release sent out Wednesday morning. The new pick-up and drop-off locations are a part of Evo’s third major expansion project, which also includes extension of its service borders into North Vancouver.
“Burnaby was a natural choice for us,” said Tai Silvey, director of Evo Car Share. “We’ve received a lot of requests from members, saying, ‘When are you coming to Burnaby?’ Well, here we are.”
Expansion plans have accelerated due to the company’s rapid rise in popularity, Silvey believes. The company, created by BCAA and launched last year, has also tripled its car fleet to include 750 hybrid vehicles.
There are currently 1,500 Evo members in Burnaby and Silvey said the company is interested in expanding to other Burnaby sites in the future.
