How long have you been a Modo member for?
I’ve been a member for about 10 years. I started with a monthly membership and once I graduated school switched to a Modo Plus membership.
What made you want to join Modo?
My sister Holly has always been passionate about the environment and she joined Modo more than 17 years ago along with her husband. She took me for my first ride in a Modo and I knew then that I wanted to join someday. We were thrilled with the idea of being able to try so many different vehicles and not having to own one.
How do you use Modo and what’s your go to vehicle?
I use Modo for all sorts of things from big grocery trips, parties that are a bit too far to bike to, weekend getaways and climbing trips. Our go-to vehicle is Picasso, #660 because it’s right outside our door.
What was your most memorable Modo trip?
Driving to Squamish for a day of bouldering on a glorious Vancouver summer’s day. The views on the highway were so beautiful and we felt so lucky to live in this part of the world and have access to a car for the day.
In one word, what does Modo mean to you?
