I don't have any deep knowledge about the goings on at Philly Car Share, but I do know that it's the kind of operation which will have a much easier time of succeeding if they recognize that community goodwill is incredibly important.

The existence of a convenient and affordable carshare program really is revolutionary. Those who actually read my posts know that I don't really have any problem with driving, but my bigger beef is with cars taking up all that space and the policies which cater to that at the expense of all other considerations. I'm one of numerous people in Philly who lives quite happily without owning a car. If PCS didn't exist I'd probably eventually get one. Cars are very useful things and I've never said otherwise, but I don't really need/want one more than a couple of times per month and am happy to... share.
