Evo News


We’ve got major parking news!

Evo can now park in meter spots within the city of Vancouver - for free! As part of a pretty cool pilot with the city of Vancouver, we’re making Evo even more flexible to meet your needs.

Just remember to obey all parking restrictions and by-laws, cause you’ll still be on the hook for ticketing and towing fees if you park illegally.

End your trip in:

 

Meter spots in the City of Vancouver Home zone (unless marked 'no stopping' during specific times)

 

Designated Evo-only spots on street and in lots

 

Residential + Permit only Spots

 

Non Restricted 2 Hour parking

 

 

 

Don’t end your trip in:

 

Metered spots in the North Van or New West Home zone (or any meter outside Vancouver)

 

Unmarked lots + parkades

 

Commercial lots (like grocery parking lots)

 

Time restricted spots (e.g. no stopping 3pm-6pm)

 

1 hour parking only spots

 

Loading Zones, valet, bus, disabled

 

Any illegally marked spot or non-stopping areas

Download the New App Update!

March 27, 2018

Yep, we’ve got a new app release available for both Android and iOS. And the updates are pretty awesome if we do say so ourselves. Not only have we worked on stability, and made it easier to use, we’ve added new features like radar, which let you select any geographic area you want to find an Evo in, and alerts you when an Evo becomes available.

We’ve even made the app compatible with Amazon’s Alexa since she’s now available in Canada. You can check out the Evo skill on all 18 Alexa devices (including Sonos speakers).

To make sure your app keeps working, Download the new release for iPhone or Android. Just note, you’ll need to login to the app once it’s updated - if you run into any trouble, try resetting your password or ask us for help.

Amazon Alexa talking to  Evo

Evo is super excited to be the first Canadian Car share to introduce a skill for Amazon Alexa in Canada. Pretty cool, eh.

Check out these suggestions on how to get Alexa to work for you:

  • Alexa, ask Evo to find me a car

  • Alexa, ask Evo how much time is left on my reservation
  • Alexa, ask Evo to cancel my booking

While you still need your Evo app to start and end trips, this free skill allows Members to find and book cars easier and faster from their home (or anywhere else an Amazon Alexa device may be!).

Fuel Card Changes

December 29, 2017

We always try to make sure Evos are fueled up and ready to hit the road. That's why we have removed the fuel card from our cars - so you can get where you need to go without worrying about filling up. Our cars should always be equipped with enough gas to get you wherever you need to go within our Home Zone.

If you're planning on a longer trip and need to refuel, it's easy to fill up. Simply fuel up your Evo, snap a picture of the receipt, and email it along with the license plate and time of your trip to info@evo.ca. We will process the reimbursement, and credit your credit card on file for the amount of the refill.
