Help our community win a Mobility Van!


Diane and Marc_logo (Large)On Sunday, October 20th, we will be competing with 5 other non-profit organizations from around the country for a chance to win a Toyota Sienna Mobility Van through the Toyota 100 Cars for Good program. The top 2 organizations with the most votes by the end of the day (10pm MST) will WIN the vehicle of their choice!

If eGo wins, an unlimited number of individuals in our community with mobility challenges will have extremely affordable access to personal transportation options that many of us take for granted in our daily lives. As an added bonus, the versatility of this van would also benefit countless nonprofits in our area.

Denver’s new on-street parking signs are up!

20130807_113935

At the end of July, Denver Public Works added 30+ new parking spaces to downtown by finding space at the ends of streets, shifting metered parking, and coming up with other creative ways to accommodate, dedicated, on-street parking spaces for carshare vehicles. Operators were given the opportunity to request these spaces and pay a yearly permit fee to offset lost meter revenue, making the program revenue-neutral for the City. Outside of the downtown area, operators can request parking locations on a sliding permit scale depending on location and whether the space is metered, such as eGo’s newly dedicated space on 32nd (left).

Thanks to all these changes, you will be seeing a lot more carsharing happening in the Mile High City!

Ever wonder how carshare members use our service? This amazing video filmed and edited by George Ferris of George Ferris Photography gives you a quick glimpse into a day in the life of an eGo CarShare reservation. From getting to the car via RTD light rail to picking up friends and equipment (with the help of the in-car eGo CarShare re-usable bags) and on to the photo shoot at snowy Red Rocks. This video gives you a look at how a professional can reduce their costs by utilizing carshare instead of owning their own vehicle!

Prius C – Greenest Car in the US

We knew we liked the new Prius Cs we have been adding to our fleet. – 4 in total so far, but we like them even more now that they have even earned the top spot as the “Greenest Vehicles of 2013”! And even though the Prius C takes top billing, much of our fleet is comprised of vehicles on this list like the Honda Fit, Toyota Prius, Honda Civic Hybrid, and Honda Insight.

Our members are making great transportation choices by living car-light and eGo is making an investment to keep our fleet as fuel-efficient as possible. A huge win for our environment and communities.

Learn more about the how the Prius C ranks and other green cars in the market at greencars.org.
