5 minutes Date Enacted: Jul 1, 2012
The District of Columbia Housing Authority (DCHA) partnered with Zipcar to place nine carsharing vehicles at DCHA buildings to increase transportation options for residents. DCHA and Zipcar collaborated to determine the most beneficial locations for the cars to be placed, with vehicles being placed in wards 3, 6, 7, and 8. The program is designed to allow residents to attend job interviews, go to doctor’s appointments, and run errands without relying solely on public transportation.
