rates + plans.
There are two different types of individual memberships:
1. co-op membership
Co-op members make a one-time refundable $500 shares purchase to receive Modo's lowest rates, enhanced benefits and the right to vote at our AGM. A second person in your household can join as an associate member with the same rights and privileges for a $250 shares purchase. Co-op members are charged for time and distance separately.
2. casual membership
The casual membership is great for commitment-shy types who want to see if carsharing is right for them. Casual members may not need to use Modo cars very often but have the peace of mind that comes with knowing they have access to a car whenever the need arises. Casual members pay a $50 annual fee and pay different rates than co-op members: higher hourly rate, but a number of kilometres included per day.

Modo’s fuel surcharge addresses unpredictable gas prices while keeping rates stable and fair. The surcharge is calculated based on average gas prices in Metro Vancouver that month and is applied once gas is above $1.10 per litre; at that point, the surcharge increases by one cent for every 10 cent increase in the price of a litre of gas. It's typically cents per kilometre.
The fuel surcharge is only applied to co-op member accounts at the moment; casual member rates cover rising gas prices, for now.
Almost all of Modo's vehicles are the same low price — no matter where you are in the city, what type of car you need, or even what day of the week it is.
However, a few Premium vehicles, notably our full-size cargo vans, are simply more expensive to operate. Co-op members pay an extra 20¢ per kilometre when driving one of these Premium vehicles. Casual members pay an extra $3 per hour — which raises the daily cap to $84 — and an extra 20¢ on kilometres over 150km per day.
