Flexcar comes to town

Now people in Downtown and Oakland can rent cars by the hour. This is a really good service, from what I have heard about it. I think it'll be great for students especially.

The list of cities where this is offered is smallish, so we're getting in on it relatively early. (The service has been around since 1999, but it's far from being everywhere).

Other cities where it's offered: Seattle; Los Angeles; San Francisco; San Diego; Portland, Ore.; Chicago; Baltimore; Philadelphia; Atlanta; Washington and Gainesville, Fla.

I got to drive some of the cars around this evening to reposition them. They are all very nice and fun to drive. If you can find 40 people in your neighborhood you can most likely get Flexcar to expand there after they are done with their pilot projects in Downtown and Oakland...I'm already lobbying for Lawrenceville. I think it would kill here!

Something tells me it wouldn't work in Highland Park :D

Lawrenceville might work, as would Squirrel Hill. But Oakland and Downtown are an excellent start.

I think the south side would be a great place for this as well, considering parking issues there, I think a number of people would prefer to not own cars. I should email the South Side CDC

If you think about the urban environment here... it makes sense that a program like this would succeed

Don't tell I told you, but expect to see more and more Flexcars out east over the next few days and weeks...they are already on the road in Squire Hill, Shadyside, and in the East Liberty/Shadyside blurry area...

Next stop...Lawrenceville/Bloomfield :ph34r:
