Our people

Driven by purpose

Everyone who works at Modo shares in our work to achieve our purpose - the means by which we impact our communities through sustainable transportation.

Our purpose is simple — to transform communities by connecting people and places in a way that is affordable, convenient, inclusive and sustainable.

Work with Modo

Modo's team is as diverse as the communities we serve, but we are all united by one goal — to make a difference in the lives of our members and in the places where we live and work.

We do this by helping people free themselves from the constraints of car ownership, by redefining what it means to get around and by raising our voices for healthier and more sustainable communities.

While we aim to grow our business, we are driven by people, not profit. Our Board of Directors are elected during the voting period preceding our Annual General Meeting to represent the interest of the cooperative and our members.

Through the Board, our members actively participate in setting strategic direction and making decisions. Thanks to this lean structure, we are able to innovate and create solutions that meet the needs of the Modo community.
