Carpool fees are payable to drivers as follows:
$7 minimum per passenger for "in-town" and "near town" destinations
$10 minimum per passenger for "out of town" (beyond West Vancouver and Mission)
The trip leader will set the carpool exact fee for their trip, the amount depends on the distance and road-type travelled, as well as the number of passengers per vehicle. The driver suplies the vehicle, drives, and is expected to have all their costs covered by the carpool fee provided by passengers.
Note: as a courtesy to drivers bring a change of footwear so you can take off your wet and/or muddy boots (and stow them in a bag) after the hike/outing.
