HOURCAR's Newest Hub: Grand & Victoria
HOURCAR announces the launch of its 27th shared vehicle in the Twin Cities. The car, a red 2010 Honda Fit, is located at HOURCAR’s newest hub near the intersection of Grand Avenue and Victoria Street in Saint Paul.
With Grand Avenue’s many amenities and services within walking and bicycling distance and easy access to regular transit service, neighborhood residents and visitors will now be able to rely on multiple modes of transportation and have access to a vehicle when they need one. There are multiple bike racks near this hub and Metro Transit’s route 63 bus passes by every 15 to 20 minutes.
As is often the case, this HOURCAR arrives with considerable support from a wide variety of neighborhood organizations, residents and businesses. HOURCAR and the Summit Hill Association Environmental Committee worked together to secure support for this hub from the Grand Avenue Business Association, the Summit Hill Association, neighborhood residents, and a wide array of neighborhood businesses, including Health East Grand Avenue Clinic, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Live Green Apartments, Exeter Realty, Grand Avenue Vet, @Home Apartments, George’s Shoe Repair and Ten Thousand Villages.
We use HOURCAR for staff members who need to drive for off-site business events and educational programs.”
