Increasingly, we are reading about urban residential development projects that do away with parking facilities for condo owners. A few weeks ago, a Washington developer, in exchange for avoiding the creation of numerous parking spaces, agreed to provide free car-share or bike-share memberships to unit owners for a period of five years. Further, the development will install an electronic billboard in the lobby showing arrival and availability information for nearby forms of transportation, updated in real time.
The urban mobility ecosystem is becoming increasingly multimodal. Another example of this: Los Angeles Metro partnered with ZipCar to increase the number of car sharing locations on transit lines.
