Invitation to Avego Launch Event

AVEGO would like to invite you to the Kinsale Carpooling Launch In The Kinsale Suite, Actons Hotel, Kinsale on Tuesday, 30th April 2013 at 7pm

What's it all about?
Census data shows us that 50% of cars leaving Kinsale travel to Cork.  Most of these cars have 2-3 empty seats in them.  
Many drivers would be willing to share, but don’t know how to find people going their way, while lots of prospective passengers have limited or no access to a car.

Avego can make carpooling a more practical and more reliable transport option for everyone.   
Using smartphones, Avego can help people to find each other and share the expenses of commuting between the driver and the passenger.

Sean O'Sullivan, CEO of Avego is launching an initiative for all commuters from Kinsale and the hinterlands to Cork and beyond.
The Mayor of Kinsale, Cllr Billy Lynch, along with Dan Boyle, will be in attendance on the night.

Apart from the obvious environmental and cost saving benefits, you might be surprised to learn about some of the hidden benefits already being enjoyed by the Avego community in Kinsale.
With dozens of users already in the Kinsale area saving hundreds of euro weekly, Avego is set to become the hot new mode of transport, with Kinsale commuters pioneering the way in Ireland
This is a community event and all are welcome so feel free to tell friends, family and colleagues.

See you there!
