RFP for a car sharing program; zipcar won contract. City agrees to provide on and off-street parking as well as assistance with marketing and promotion.
"A car sharing program provides pre-approved members with a fully automated on-line reservation and billing system that provides access to a fleet of self-service vehicles including cars, trucks and vans which are strategically placed throughout the City, which can be rented by the hour or day. These rates would include parking at the vehicle’s home site, fuel, maintenance and insurance. The car sharing vehicles are available when the short-term use of a private vehicle is needed." (p.5)
