University can be a very expensive time in ones life: tuition, nutrition and transportation are all costly commodities that often sink students into debt. Even the most frugal of spenders have trouble paying for the ever-inflating costs.
Fortunately, General Motors has teamed up with AutoShare to help ease the sting of the latter expense for students at three universities in Toronto, Canada.
The newly minted partnership will see Chevrolet provide 16 vehicles to be used in the AutoShare fleet at Ryerson University, the University of Toronto, and York University; three of the most prominent post-secondary facilities in the Greater Toronto Area.
Thankfully for students, the partnership is a whole lot more than just a few extra vehicles to share: registration fees for the service will be waived courtesy of Chevrolet.
Plus, AutoShare users on the aforementioned campuses will be treated to $6 hourly driving rates on all Chevrolet models, which helps students save an extra 35-40 percent versus the standard rate.
“We are thrilled to be working with AutoShare to provide university students in Toronto with this unique opportunity to find new roads, both on and off the campus,” said John Roth, GM Canada’s VP of sales, service and marketing. “This partnership provides around-the-clock access to a range of fun-to-drive and stylish Chevrolets.”
Not a bad way to start off the school year, if you ask us.
