San Francisco on Cutting Edge for Car Sharing


NY Times Wheels Blog - May 2, 2010

Car shar­ing is chang­ing. Sunil Paul, the clean-tech entre­pre­neur behind a new San Fran­cis­co ser­vice called Spride Share, looked at the num­bers and decid­ed that 10,000 shared cars in the U.S. was not like­ly to change the world. The answer, Mr. Paul says, is per­son­al car shar­ing, in which car own­ers can get mod­est pay­ments of $5 to $8 an hour to allow their often-idle car or truck to be shared, either by friends and neigh­bors or the larg­er car-shar­ing com­mu­ni­ty.
