eGo CarShare is a local 501(c)(3) nonprofit carsharing organization serving the Denver-Boulder metro area. Our mission is to provide and promote alternatives to individual car ownership, thereby reducing the environmental and social impacts associated with motor vehicle use.
eGo started in Boulder in 1997(!) as â€œThe Little Red Car Co-opâ€. Since then we have remained focused solely on serving our neighbors in the Denver/Boulder area. We are proud to be an institution that contributes to making Colorado 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. We work in the community to provide programs like our Affordable Housing Multi-modal Toolkit, Casa Esperanza Pilot Program and Boulder Cooperative Housing programs.
eGo has some of the lowest hourly carshare rates and best insurance coverage in the country, and with our unbundled mileage rate, members are really only paying for what they use. They have an economic incentive to minimize their trip distance, and thus shop, play and work as locally as possible.
eGo is committed to expanding the reach of carshare to RTD's full service area through strategic partnerships with community and transportation organizations. Most for-profit carshare providers in other cities focus primarily on select pockets of the city, which further exacerbates transportation equity issues.
eGo is doing its part to keep our environment happy and healthy for all. According to our own member survey and national research, every car in our fleet replaces 9-13 privately owned vehicles, and our members drive 52% less than when they owned their own car! In 2014, eGo CarShare was recognized by Colorado Biz with the Inaugural Green Colorado Award.
