CarSharing Association Founding Member

Our commitment to the sharing economy extends beyond our local partners. As a founding member of the International CarSharing Association, we support the growth of carsharing across the U.S. and around the world. Because we’re a nonprofit, we can collaborate, not compete, with other nonprofit carshare organizations and share experience to further improve our service.

Posted in

Programs

eGo’s Loanation Program (Peer-to-Peer) allows community members to add their personal vehicles to the carshare fleet. In exchange, eGo takes care of maintenance and insurance and gives the members carshare credit that can be used for any car in the fleet. eGo also piloted a joint access card with Denver B-cycle that allows members to access both shared services with one card.

Organizational Impact

eGo practices what it preaches. The majority of our staff does not own cars and gets around town via active transportation. Our Denver office is located at the Alliance Center, which provides below-market rent and operational support to nonprofit organizations all focused on some aspect of sustainability policies and practices.

Fleet Impact

eGo’s fleet boasts an average fuel efficiency of 33.7 mpg, compared to the national average of only 20.3 mpg. Not only are fewer miles being driven, but the miles driven are in much more fuel-efficient vehicles, a huge win for air quality.

We also choose to keep mileage and hourly charges separate. It all comes back to our mission to reduce the impact of single occupancy car driving on the community and the environment. By keeping the mileage separate, we incentivize people to work, shop, and play as locally as possible. There is a real cost to the environment (air pollution, CO2 emissions) and community (traffic, wear and tear to roads) for every mile driven so we encourage people to consider their impact.

Mission Focus

We exist to provide carsharing as a service, not a business. By design, we keep our margins as low as possible, and keep our members and mission at the forefront of all financial decisions.

Posted in

Premium Insurance Coverage

We have $1,000,000 in liability coverage – more than double the recommended amount – and a low deductible, because we are a nonprofit! We also offer a Damage Fee Waiver Program that allows you to reduce your deductible to $0.

Posted in

Community Focus

eGo is focused on making our community the best place to call home. One way to do that is by reducing our dependence on personal vehicles, which helps create a more walkable, bikeable, and enjoyable community.

We also strive to make our community better by partnering to provide discounted carsharing access to low-income and other groups that can benefit from carsharing.

Integrated with Public Transportation

eGo is part of our local transportation network, providing a public service designed to enhance mobility options. We support all means of transportation that have a lower environmental impact. That’s why we like to locate our cars next to B-cycle, bus, and light rail stations, and why we keep bike and bus maps in our cars. Our motto has always been, “Walk, bike, ride the bus, but when you need us, we’re here.”

Step 1. Am I Eligible?

  • You must have at least 2 years of licensed driving experience, so you must be at least 18 years old.
  • If you are 18 – 21 years old you must have a clean driving record (something your mom would be proud to show off ).
  • If you are over 21 you still need to have a very good driving history. A few minor incidents/violations will be accepted, but nothing major like a DUI.
  • If you consider yourself a permanent Colorado resident then you must get a Colorado driver’s license within 30 days of establishing permanent residency. (You are responsible for following all applicable State laws.)
  • If you are a temporary Colorado resident (such as a student or visiting professor) you can apply using your out of state license.
  • If you are a temporary Colorado resident and have a foreign driver’s license, you must provide with us a current, official driving history record (in English).
  • For more instructions on how to obtain a foreign driving record, please visit this page.

Step 2. Review Our Membership Agreement and Apply

Step 3. We’ll process your application and mail your fob.

As soon as you submit the online application form we’ll get the ball rolling. If you have a Colorado driver’s license, we can generally get your account set up by the end of the next business day. (Please allow a minimum of 2-3 additional business days if you have an out of state driver’s license, and possibly longer for a foreign driver’s license.) After you are approved, we will mail your fob to you.

If you would like to get your keyfob faster, you may pick it up from one of our our offices. Just let us know where and when you will pick it up at info@carshare.org or 303.720.1185.
