Small town life usually means owning a car to get where you need to go, but an Edmonton-based startup wants to change that.
Pogo, a local car-sharing app, is hitting the road and expanding service to Camrose, becoming the first rideshare in Alberta available in a small town.
Public transit can be a challenge in cities without a huge population base--roughly 19,000 people live in Camrose--and Pogo Co-founder Kieran Ryan says ride shares can fill a significant gap.
“In a lot of small towns, public transit is pretty difficult and car sharing can really enhance the public transit system,” he told Metro.
