Meet your new Board of Directors

What better way to celebrate 20 years of Modo than at our Annual General Meeting! From thoughtful questions and insightful presentations, everyone in attendance—in person and via livestream in Vancouver and Victoria—contributed to the evening's success and we thank you. 


Election Results


This year, three Lower Mainland director positions were up for election. We're pleased to welcome William Azaroff and Joel DeYoung back to our board, along with new director, Christina Beck (pictured above).


To commemorate our 20 year anniversary, Doug Smith and Monika Prohl of the City of Vancouver gave a presentation on the role Modo has played in shaping municipal carsharing strategies not just at home, but around the world. And capping off the evening, we had Modo Member #6, Linda, cut the cake and share her story of making the first Modo booking, ever! Congratulations to member Ruth, who found the $200 gift fob hidden in the cake.


Looking Back


As we celebrate 20 years of growing the carsharing movement, we're also looking forward to what the next 20 years will bring Modo. Watch our video and tell us where you see us going!

Tips From Our Pros: Running late?

It happens—sometimes traffic, road detours, or simply life gets in the way of your schedule. If you're running late while on a Modo booking, make sure to add extra time before your booking ends with our app, or call our team so we can help the next member get on their way.
