The Rise of Car Sharing

Streetfilms takes a look at the growing trend of car sharing as part of its series on cities moving beyond the automobile.

"Zipcar, a leading global car sharing organization, reports that members walk and bike 10-15% more than they did before joining Zipcar. They also report that members save $600 a month when they choose car sharing over owning a private automobile.

So while car sharing isn't exactly "Moving Beyond the Automobile," it is a great way for cities and individuals to help make the transportation network more efficient and become less dependent on owning a private cars."

This is the third in a ten-part series of films from Streetfilms.
