Farrell Seeks More Car-Sharing

As part of an effort to reduce the city’s carbon footprint and its expenses, District 2 Supervisor Mark Farrell introduced legislation in September that would mandate the use of car-sharing vehicles instead of city-owned vehicles whenever practical. It would also reduce non-essential city vehicles by 25 percent every three years.

“Other municipalities with similar models have realized significant cost-savings, environmental benefits, and better management of their city fleet by transitioning to car-sharing models, and I believe San Francisco should explore the same,” said Farrell.
