Winter Driving Tips

Snowed in car

Snowed in!

Greetings eGo Members!

Having trouble finding our eGo CarShare cars during heavy snowfall? Our Member Support Team is always here to help, but as a small nonprofit with convenient and comprehensive vehicles across Denver and Boulder County, it takes us a while to brush off every one of our cars, trucks and our AWD snow toys!

Here are some tips to help your trip go more smoothly in the event of a snowfall or very cold weather:
  • Allow more time (5-10 mins) in your booking to brush snow off the car, chip ice away, heat up, etc.
  • In every car there is a brush and scraper located in the backseat, or in the trunk
  • Be sure you are familiar with the car type, color, and location before your booking
  • Upon leaving the car, double-check that all lights in the car are off (even one door light left on can drain a winter battery super fast)
  • Take extra care and leave far more breaking distance on icy roads
If snow or low battery issues have caused any inconvenience (it happens in cold/ice!), know that eGo CarShare is committed to being here for you year-round and we’re doing our best!
Be sure to remember these tips for the upcoming cold snap and snowfall, and enjoy our beautiful Colorado Winters!
