This is how you can combine carsharing with transit

Metro Vancouver’s transit system is expansive, spanning more than 1,800 square kilometres and reaching 90 per cent of where people live and work. There’s so much to explore that’s near transit, but what if you’re feeling adventurous and want to explore a part of the region’s that’s off the beaten path?

Take transit to carshare — it’s a match like peanut butter and jam! We have dedicated stalls for Modo and Evo carshare vehicles at select stations. Modo’s available at King George, Coquitlam Central, and Edmonds stations, while you can access Evo at Braid and Columbia stations.

Modo is a round-trip carsharing service, which means you return the car where you pick it up from, while Evo is a one-way carsharing service. You can drop off your Evo car anywhere within the home zone, which includes most of Vancouver, as well as parts of North Vancouver and New Westminster.

It’s best to register for the carsharing service of your choice in advance, so you’re not fumbling to register at the SkyTrain station. Visit Modo and Evo‘s websites to register and find out their rates. Not a member? Modo’s offering a $60 driving credit to first-time members using the code TRANSIT2MODO. Join Evo for free and receive 45 minutes free with the promo code, TRAVELSMART.

We recommend booking in advance to ensure when you arrive at the SkyTrain station there’s a car waiting for you. You can book up to a year in advance for Modo, while you can book up to 30 minutes in advance for Evo.
