FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Just in-time for the beginning of the rainy season, Vancouverites can now enjoy hassle-free access to umbrellas at participating locations as part of UmbraCity’s first phase of expansion.
After experiencing tremendous success at The University of British Columbia (UBC) with over 30,000 umbrella rentals, UmbraCity has expanded its umbrella sharing network to downtown Vancouver and is ready to cover Vancouverites on rainy days. This first expansion covers higher density areas within Downtown Vancouver including office buildings, residential buildings, venues, hotels, and retails.
Residents and commuters in Downtown Vancouver can now borrow umbrellas for as low as $1 for 24 hours. As Vancouver’s weather could be unpredictable, UmbraCity provides freedom for the community members to move around the city whenever and wherever without worrying about bringing an umbrella or getting drenched in the rain.
UmbraCity also offers subsidized complementary plans for the members of its corporate, residential, or educational partners by extending this amenity to their employees, tenants or students. UmbraCity has partnered with Oxford Properties, Vancouver Convention Centre, Terminal City Club, Westbank Properties Corp, Waves Coffee House, Bosa Properties, Blue Horizon Hotel, and Rancho Property Services to inspire a more livable city together.
“By partnering with innovative and forward-thinking organizations and properties, we have now launched the initial expansion of our umbrella sharing service to downtown Vancouver with 23 locations and 6,000 umbrellas, and with many more locations to be launched in a short period of time. We will continue to work with properties to offer this service to Vancouver and make it a more walkable city.” said Amir Entezari, founder and CEO of UmbraCity.
“UmbraCity looks forward to keeping Vancouver dry in the coming months and we invite interested properties to reach out and join the network.” said Jamie Pitblado, the Director of Business Development.
