Car Pooling and Mileage Rates

Transport to canoeing areas will often be by means of a car pool arrangement. 

  The Club operates on a "friends driving friends" model. Based on this model, before any trip, driver and  passenger(s) should make mutually agreeable financial arrangements to share the costs of  driving. If a guideline is necessary, the Club recommends the cost of the trip be calculated at  $0.25/km ($0.30/km for carrying two or more canoes), to be divided equally among the number  of travellers, including the driver.   Drivers, however, shall be free to charge whatever rate they feel is reasonable. The other  members of the trip must agree to the rates before the trip begins.   Drivers should protect themselves by ensuring that their insurance coverage permits the carrying  of passengers who share in the cost of transportation.
