The Local Good: Carsharing in Edmonton celebrates one year

Celebrating its first year of operation, naming Pogo Carshare’s biggest triumph is easy for co-founder and entrepreneur Kieran Ryan — simply, that it works.

Now with over 2,000 members to date, Pogo has received plenty of local support, with an average user age of 35 and the potential to transform (currently) downtown, Old Strathcona and the university area when it comes to options around car ownership.

I sat down with Kieran at Little Brick Cafe in Riverdale, and, properly caffeinated, chatted about Pogo’s first year in Edmonton — a city, by the way, where there was apparent skepticism about success for a carsharing model.
