The Arlington Carshare Program 2006 Report provides a summary of the program and provides a second-year evaluation of the Carshare Program based on member surveys conducted by Arlington in March 2005 and 2006.
The report findings include the following:
Carsharing membership has increased by over 37% in the past year for a total of nearly 3,500 individuals.
Five percent (5%) of Arlington residents living in the Metrorail corridors are Flexcar or Zipcar members.
Carsharing has allowed members to reduce their vehicle ownership rates and overall vehicle-miles traveled while increasing transit use and walking. Members also have generally been able to postpone buying a vehicle.
The Report concludes that the Arlington Carshare Program complements the walk/bike/transit-friendly lifestyle available in Arlingtonâ€™s urban villages.
