Promote car and bike sharing

Car sharing schemes enable people to give up their car while still being able to access one at a reasonable price if they need to. At the same time, bike sharing offers a greener alternative to cars for short/medium length trips without the upfront cost and commitment of buying one.

For these reasons, Camden should welcome flexible car sharing platforms (such as Zipcar flex) and free-floating bike sharing (such as that offered by Ofo and Mobike).

Why the contribution is important

Reducing vehicle traffic is an essential step in improving the quality of life (and air) in the borough. Citizens who rely on their cars for their daily transportation cannot be expected to "quit cold turkey", so the administration needs to find a way to ease heavy car users into relying less on their own means of transportation.
