Evo sets aside 250 vehicles for frontline healthcare workers to use for free

BCAA’s Evo Car Share has partnered with local health authorities in what it says is an effort to support BC’s frontline healthcare workers during the pandemic.

The service has allocated 250 Evo vehicles for exclusive use to frontline healthcare workers during this time on a secondment basis. Evo said the move is meant to help support British Columbian healthcare workers to stay mobile and continue to save lives.

Noting that over 70 healthcare workers have already allocated their own Evo vehicle, the company said it extended its available fleet to 250 vehicles “to support the need for transit, and [they] will continue to do so in order to play their part.”

Each Evo vehicle will come sanitized and fuelled-up, designated for the “health hero” to use for free until the end of May, “with possibility of extension if our healthcare workers still need Evo’s help,” the company said.

“Over the past month, British Columbians have come together to help ‘flatten the curve,'” said Evo. “Thousands have stepped up to go to work while others try best to do their part by staying at home.”

As part of its efforts, Evo said it reached out to its members last month in a call to action to only use Evo vehicles for essential trips. “For those who are selflessly doing their part to keep our city running, Evo wanted to help as best they can,” the company said.
