Zip Car is an option. Weekend rentals are approx $112. If someone was willing to drive my car up, we could accommodate 10 people total. With tolls it'd probably come out to be about $13-15/person. Would people be willing to pay that much?
i would be willing to contribute $13-15 for rentals, though i can't contribute any driving (i don't have a drivers license, womp womp). i also think public transpo is always a fantastic option, am a proponent all da way.
Okay. Here's my plan- let me know what you think. Not sure how many hiking days are left, so for the fall/winter, I'll be posting hikes and the first 4 people to RSVP can have a spot in my car. Otherwise, I will try to pick hikes easily accessible by public transportation. If people are interested in carpooling or renting a car, feel free to use the comments section to organize/arrange rides.
I've been checking out how other hiking clubs tackle this problem, and it seems like that's what they do: members use the comments section to organize rides, car rentals and zip car rentals. We'll see how it works and come next Spring I hope that our membership will increase and there will be more opportunity to ride/rent-share.
