modo milestone: 300 vehicles!
Back in 1997, when carsharing was just a funky thing only Québecois and Europeans did, Modo—or, as it was then called, the Co-operative Auto Network—started with two cars in Vancouver’s West End. Flash forward 16 years to 2013 and we’re celebrating our 300th vehicle!
In addition to this milestone, we’re also doubling our fleets in Surrey and Richmond and placing our first car in Coquitlam this fall.
It’s been a long road (so to speak), and we couldn’t have arrived here without the tireless efforts of our staff and board, nor the continued commitment of members to live car-free—and tell their friends about it. Our growth could only be possible with your steady ambassadorship for sustainable transportation and love for your local car co-op. So, thank you, you’re our heroes!
And of course, we’d be remiss not to specially recognize founder Tracy Axelsson, without whose tireless efforts this crazy thing would never have happened. Thank you, Tracy.
To all those, present and past, who’ve contributed heart and soul to realizing the success of our co-operative, thank you too.
With humble thanks,
