The dialogue will touch on the development of the different car sharing models we have in Vancouver and how this new transportation trend is impacting mobility and emission in the City of Vancouver. With Mark Pribula from Zipcars, Phil Baudin from the Modo co-op and Car2Go (tbc). Car sharing is now developped in many of the world’s leading cities. Car sharing helps reduce our GHG emissions and takes cars off the roads, enhancing the resiliency and sustainability of urban environments.
ZIPCAR is the world’s leading car sharing network and aims to redefine the way this generation thinks about alternative transportation. While leaving a small footprint on the environment, Zipcar delivers on-demand mobility and great time saving service. Its mission is to enable simple and responsible urban living, where car sharing members outnumber car owners in major cities around the globe.
MODO, formerly The Car Co-op & The Company car, is a non-profit car sharing co-operative incorporated in 1997 to foster car sharing and raise awareness about the benefits of car sharing over individual ownership. Modo is the founder of the Car Sharing Association (CSA) and its goal and vision is to see communities of carsharers, created through sustainable transportation.
This dialogue is free and open to the public, just bring your own lunch!
