A recent study reminds us just how bad traffic and parking have become in the City of Los Angeles. Many cities are looking for ways to reduce VMT (Vehicle Miles Traveled) along with extending the existing rail lines, to accomodate more travelers. Car sharing is fast becoming a welcome extension of the transit/rail/biking networks. Do your “share” to reduce the number of cars on the road and consider joining a carshare and/or enrolling your business to increase participation in your employee sponsored programs!
