VRTUCAR Eco Campus Commuter

Every college and university has a mandate to reduce private cars on campus and encourage the use of sustainable transportation. VRTUCAR has placed shared cars on Ottawa campuses for many years.

Now, VRTUCAR has launched an “Eco Campus Commuter” agreement with Algonquin College, Carleton University, Saint Paul University and the University of Ottawa.  The Eco Campus Commuter agreement provides an environmentally-friendly alternative to get from one campus to another that is convenient and economical.

VRTUCAR members who use campus VRTUCARs, or attend classes, teach or work on campus, now have free parking on each of the other campuses. For example, if you’re a member who is enrolled in a joint program, or you go from one campus to another to use the recreation facilities, and you drive there using a campus VRTUCAR (listed below), you won’t have to pay for parking!
