Modo & CCCU Partner Together to Increase Sustainable Transportation

 

Coastal Community Credit Union (CCCU) has become one of our newest Modo Business Members on the Island! 

 

To demonstrate their commitment to sustainable transportation, they will not only encourage their staff to use Modo, they've also created an innovative subsidy for CCCU members. Through this subsidy, CCCU members who would like to join Modo as shareholding members will receive $250 from CCCU towards their $500 Modo share. Additionally, new Modo members will also receive $50 in free drive time.

 

Spread the word about this opportunity with your friends and family, or contact them yourselves if you’re a Monthly member looking to upgrade to Modo Plus. The more Modo grows on the Island, the better it is for everyone!

 

Find out more about the partnership and read the press release.
