April 2016 — Victoria Edition

image dsc

Tsawwassen and Swartz Bay are on our map!

Heather, our Modo staff member in Victoria, has the scoop on our newest location below!


Wouldn’t it be nice to get off the ferry in Tsawwassen and just drive away? Now you can.


As of April 5th Modo has two cars located at the Tsawwassen ferry terminal, and two Modo spots at the Swartz Bay side of the water will be joining soon.


At Tsawwassen, you can book a 2014 grey Chevrolet Orlando (#562) and a 2012 red Toyota Matrix (#342), located right next to the vehicle entrance for long-term parking at the terminal!


Have an appointment in Vancouver, or elsewhere on the in the Lower Mainland? Want to spend a long weekend in Whistler? IKEA runs, or drop-offs and pick-ups at the Vancouver airport? Your off-Island trips just got easier.


Ferry vehicles were a regular request we heard from members and thanks to the amalgamation one year ago — and prolonged efforts to secure parking — your trips can be a breeze. Same goes for our friends and relatives on the Lower Mainland, who can soon grab a Modo at Swartz Bay to toodle around the Island. Prepare the guest room!
