Modo transforms communities by connecting people with places in a way that’s affordable, convenient, inclusive and sustainable by enabling access to the most diverse fleet of shared vehicles across the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island. Simply put, with Modo, you get all the benefits of having a car, without all the hassles of owning one (or two).
For as low as $5/hour—including gas, insurance, maintenance, bridge tolls, and parking privileges—you can drive what you want, when you want. Choose from over 600 cars, SUVs, passenger and cargo vans, pick-up trucks, hybrids and EVs – all at the same great rate, any day or time. Whether you’re out on a date or off to the dentist, Modo’s two-way service allows you to book a year in advance or on the fly.
With all this—and live 24/7 member service—it’s no wonder that 18,000 members, 800 businesses, 100 building developers and several local municipalities use Modo.
Modo is your locally owned member co-op, driven by people, not profits—how cool is that?
Welcome to the future of driving!
It started off like many other co-ops—with an innovative idea and a ton of passion. With just two cars and 16 members in Vancouver’s West End, Modo was born out of an SFU thesis project—as a way to get more people to share fewer cars. Back in 1997, we were the first and only local carshare to provide all the benefits of owning a car, without all the hassles.
As a member-owned co-op, we began with a goal to provide our members with great service and best value. And nearly two decades later—with more carshare operators to choose from—Modo remains the only one focused on maximizing member service, not profits. Not bad for a little co-op with big dreams.
Long gone is our old name (the Co-operative Auto Network) and tattered log books. Today, they’ve been replaced by sophisticated technology and apps as we’ve grown our membership across the Lower Mainland, and into Victoria, Sidney and Nanaimo. However, Modo’s organic roots and commitment to all things local remain.
Modo. A true Vancouver original.
