WHCU Features Car Sharing Story

This morning, Ithaca's morning talk and news program on radio station WHCU featured a story we covered some weeks ago here on Ithaca Blog, on a car sharing enterprise coming to town sometime in the next few months.

New details have emerged. Apparently the group has decided to start with a fleet of eight cars. There will be two cars at each of four locations: Cornell, Ithaca College, EcoVillage, and downtown.

Cornell, Ithaca College, and EcoVillage are partners in the project. Presumably, they will determine where on their premises the cars will be kept.

The city of Ithaca is also a partner in the project. Deciding where the cars assigned to downtown will be kept will presumably be a more difficult issue for the city, with competing constituencies, and more complicated cost and logistics factors.

See WHCU's website for the current developments, and Ithaca Blog for background information, as well as future developments.
