Communauto Alberta provides carsharing service in the province’s two major cities.
Communauto’s Edmonton branch was established as Pogo Carshare in 2014 by local entrepreneurs and University of Alberta grads. Starting with just 10 cars, the service quickly grew over its first five years to have more than 100 cars, with thousands of members using the service for daily trips, road trips, and everything in between across Western Canada.
Having cars available throughout Edmonton and across the city’s university campuses, including the University of Alberta campus in Camrose, Pogo worked to bridge the transportation gap to help students and faculty get to where they need to be.
In 2018, Pogo Carshare was acquired by Communauto, becoming its first Western Canadian branch. In 2020, Pogo’s name was changed to Communauto and 50 new vehicles were added to the fleet.
Communauto’s Calgary branch debuted its presence in Alberta’s largest city in August 2020, with 150 cars. Communauto’s launch in Calgary follows a long tradition of carsharing in the city, which began more than 20 years ago, and will add to that with its 25+ years of urban carsharing expertise.
Communauto Alberta is part of the larger Communauto network, headquartered in Montreal. Communauto, founded in 1994, is the largest carsharing operator in Canada, and the oldest in North America. The resulting synergies benefit not only Albertans, but all Communauto members across Canada: from Nova Scotia to Alberta, and also those in Paris, France. Communauto team members from local communities and across the country work together to deliver Communauto’s carsharing service.
