We asked, you answered

Each year, we ask our members for their honest feedback about how we're doing and what, if any, changes we could make to improve their carsharing experience.


This year, we hit a record for participation with over 2,000 passionate members providing us insight into how Modo fits into their lives. Your comments were overwhelmingly positive and we're grateful for everyone who took time to share their thoughts and experience. We've highlighted some member insights we think you'll find interesting on our blog – check it out!


Congratulations to Jennifer T. of Vancouver who was the lucky winner of our $200 driving credit draw!

Tips from our Pros: Avoiding Late Charges During Summer

Fix It with Farrell

Penny Wise!: The old school cigarette lighter in cars has been replaced with a 12V Accessory Power socket to help charge our devices on the road. But the danger of losing items (like a penny) in them hasn't changed.


Finders Keepers: When it comes to using a shared vehicle, we understand that members may occasionally leave some important items behind. That's when we put our detective hats on.
