|Happy Holidays from #VanDusenFOL|
Many of our friends are Modo members too, so it's really easy to coordinate outings. This weekend, I reserved a seven-seater & added our friend J's member number to the booking, so he could drive or pick up the car. J & his son grabbed the vehicle in their neighbourhood, then headed west to pick us up on the way to VanDusen for the Festival of Lights. Linny had fun hanging out with his friend in their boosters in the back row of the SUV, while Bronte sang her own versions of "Jingle Bells" from the middle row.
This is one of my favourite things about Modo--having access to whatever kind of vehicle I need, without having to own it. We normally drive the smaller cars in the Modo fleet--Honda Fit, Mazda 2, Toyota Yaris--since they're so easy to drive & park. But when we've gone camping with another family of four, we could use an eight-seater minivan, big enough to hold all of us & our gear. Or when I bought a backyard play structure on Craigslist, I took a truck. When my friend N picked up a toddler bed we were getting rid of this weekend, he brought a little cargo van.
If you're interested in reading more about why we love Modo, I wrote a list of ten reasons we love carsharing here.
Are you a Modo member? Which vehicles do you typically drive? Have you tried out their vans or trucks?
