About us

About IGO

We were the first carshare in Chicago, started in 2002 as a pilot program of the Center for Neighborhood Technology.

We are a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization dedicated to making it possible for everyone to live well without having to own a vehicle, and to creating an integrated multimodal transportation system.

We are local; when you call us you’re speaking to folks right here in Chicago.

We are innovative; we developed the first smart card in the nation that gives our members access to CTA trains and buses, as well as our vehicles, and we have all-electric vehicles in our fleet —and we’re just getting started.

We are environmentally-friendly; our fleet is comprised of only low-emissions vehicles that result in an average decrease of 25,000 metric tons of CO2 emissions annually.

We’re a good deal! Individual members save as much as $6,500 a year in reduced transportation costs.
