Season's Greetings from Modo

season's greetings

Modo members, friends, colleagues… 2011 is coming to a close. We’ve had a great year at Modo with lots to celebrate and appreciate.


Thank you for being part of our growth and success for the past 15 years; we simply could not have come this far without your support. To our members who have helped make carsharing in Metro Vancouver what it is today, thank you for actively shaping sustainable transportation in our region.


From our Modo family to yours – have a safe and happy holiday!

be snow-ready

Weather forecasts are calling for one of the coldest winters in Metro Vancouver. We could see white flakes any moment!


Road safety is always our priority at Modo. We ask Modo members to think carefully about driving in snowy conditions. If you cancel a booking with 12 hours' notice, there is no cancellation charge.


If you do need to drive, please book extra time in case you need to clear a snow bank around a Modo vehicle. Ice scrapers are stocked in the driver's side door pocket and year-round, snow tires are available on 10% of our fleet. Just search for 'snow tires' in 'Required Features' in Engage.
