Fewer Cars for Better Cities

Cities are warming up to the idea that planning for the future means more car sharing programs and fewer parking spaces.

Car-sharing continues to gain traction in North American cities, bolstered by the rise of both non-profit and for-profit ventures. Cities themselves have gotten the hint, too, by encouraging developers to include dedicated car sharing spaces in exchange for less private parking. Toronto is the latest to realize the benefits of car sharing, specifying requirements for new multi-family construction and limiting spaces for personal autos.

Help needed: Car-share & density - connection?

Do readers have information, links, showing the relationship between the two? It would be helpful in 'selling density' to reluctant communites....thanks!
