DriveNow Carsharing Pilot Project Implementation Article, San Francisco, California, 2015


The following article is a contemporary article describing the challenges faced by the BMW DriveNow pilot, before it shuttered.

BMW’s carshare program has had a difficult time obtaining parking permits in SF and can park on the street in just five neighborhoods. In most cities where they operate, DriveNow and rival Car2Go users can pick up a car from the curb, drive across the city and park at any legal street spot. They can do this because those cities will sell DriveNow and Car2Go a “superpermit” — a master parking pass that serves as payment for parking meters and permission to ignore time limits.
