Modo + Got Craft? = ♥

Modo The Car Co-op is the first carsharing co-operative in North America, the first English speaking car co-op in the world, and has helped carsharing co-ops start up throughout Canada. They started sharing 15 years ago – with only two cars, 16 members and one employee – and haven’t looked back since. Modo members now collectively share ownership of 270+ Modo vehicles in Metro Vancouver – booking by the hour or by the day, depending on the type of trip.

Besides wheels, Modo also offers great perks to members – from discounts on transit to extended health and dental benefits – and have roaming agreements with carsharing organizations in cities all around the world, meaning members visiting San Francisco, for example, have one more option for getting around.

As a co-operative, part of Modo‘s organizational mission is to help build vibrant, inclusive, sustainable communities. Modo has a rich history in advocating for and supporting all kinds of initiatives that make our communities stronger – including events like Got Craft?, which connects local artisans with new customers and provides a gathering space for neighbours to come together over a shared interest, such as handmade and D.I.Y. culture.
