Mission

Make personal mobility more affordable for individuals, families, companies and the communities they live and work in.

Our consumer application and platform as-a-service solution is designed to manage win-win mobility ecosystems for providers and consumers of personal mobility services.

Cites, large employers, mobility service providers and financial advisors can use our platform to launch and manage mobility and carbon initiatives with measurable operational, financial and societal results.

Consumers can use our free application to reduce the cost, time and pollution of transportation by choosing more economic and more sustainable mobility services for their specific personal transportation needs.  

Costly Cars

Cars cost more than the average worker makes per hour

The convenience of owning a car costs about $59 per hour we drive an average car in an average U.S. city. This is more than twice the $27 average hourly wage of a U.S. worker. During the same hour, we waste 34 minutes on congested roads, at traffic light stops and looking for parking and the car emits 50 full 12 oz soda cans of pollution into our air.

Depending on what car you own and in what city you drive, the numbers are order of magnitude bigger.

The average U.S. household spends about 25% of the household budget for personal transportation directly out-of-pocket. The societal cost we all pay indirectly for driving cars nearly doubles this amount to $17,900 for one average U.S. car per year.

  • Taxes for our roads, bridges and public parking.
  • Every year, more than half of the 300 hours we drive our cars is wasted in traffic, looking for parking and waiting for red traffic lights to turn and the vehicles in front of us to get going, not counting the time we spend washing, servicing and repairing our cars. The time we waste is lost forever and comes at a significant opportunity cost to ourselves and to society.
  • Every hour we drive, the average car produces 50 soda cans of pollution – 15,000 cans of CO2 per year – including deadly ingredients like CO, SO2, VOC, PM10 and PM 2.5. Pollution causes respiratory problems and allergies which increase our health insurance premiums.
  • Even the best of us get into crashes. We all pay higher insurance premiums for it and our own cost and deductibles add to our cost of driving cars.

Most own more CAR than they ever need

Cars are typically the second highest expense of a family after housing. Families often own too many cars, buy much larger cars then they regularly need or can actually afford considering the true total cost per hour of use, and pay the premium for the peace of mind of having cars available and parked for 96% of their usable time.

During the 300 hours the average car owner actually drives a car over one year, they drive alone more than 70% of trips and just use an average of 1.3 of the 5 to 7 sets they are paying for all year around.

We developed ecomo to help families and society systematically address these problems and reduce cost, time and pollution for personal mobility.

Consumer

Consumers can use our free application to reduce the cost, time and pollution of transportation by choosing more economic and more sustainable mobility services for their specific personal transportation needs.  

Ownership of too many, oversized and underutilized cars comes at significant opportunity costs that can easily exceed millions over our lifetime.

This is one reason why some families struggle to pay their bills, credit cards and mortgages and many retire into poverty. For their cars, families are regularly spending twice what most can put aside for retirement. The average retiree age 66 to 69 in the U.S.A. has $200,000 in a retirement savings account, the median nest egg is just $60,000.

ecomo helps families find ways to cut mobility expenses and use the savings to pay bills, credit cards, and mortgages or quadruple their nest egg over a lifetime.

Our team is working hard with lighthouse partners to get the app ready for prime time.
