Carsharing as a Catalyst for Bigger Ideas

Last week over at the Daily Score, Alan Durning had an interesting essay on being able to rent some of the cars he sees parked on his street.

But this whimsy leads to a serious discussion of how much of our society’s capital we tie up in both our vehicle fleet and the real estate we park that fleet on.

I just read some background material for the RTP update that indicates we have five parking spaces (at a cost of perhaps $600-$1200 per year each) for each car.

Surely we can deploy our resources with a higher rate of return for all of us?
