The OGO Car Share Co-op has more than tripled in size since opening to the public two years ago, with the addition of a seventh vehicle.
A vehicle will now be available at the Landmark Centre thanks to a $10,000 grant from the Southern Interior Development Initiative Trust.

“We are excited to expand carsharing to a new neighbourhood,” said Christian Brandt, OGO’s executive director. “This provides the business community at Landmark with an additional mobility option for their employees for work related purposes, such as going to out of office meetings.”
With the addition of the Landmark vehicle, Brandt is hoping more companies and organizations will look to carsharing instead of replacing vehicles or expanding their own fleets.
“For organizations that currently rely on employees’ own cars and rental cars, carsharing can provide added convenience and flexibility, as well as reduce the need for employees to drive their own car to work for use during the day.”
When OGO first launched in August 2013, the co-op had just two cars and about 35 members. Their fleet has since grown to seven vehicles plus more than 170 members.
