Sustainable Mobility

Robin Chase, founder of Zipcar, is coming to speak in Ann Arbor on Thursday. From the announcement:
Robin is...founder and former Chairman and CEO of Zipcar, a company whose use of the Internet and wireless technology enables rental cars to emulate personal cars. Zipcar's disruptive technology gives its members on-demand access to cars by-the-hour, revolutionizing people's relationship to their cars. Each Zipcar satisfies the car needs of 30-40 people and replaces 10-20 personal cars. Today, with more than 45,000 members and over 1000 cars, Zipcar has taken 10,000 to 20,000 cars off the streets of Boston, New York, Washington, and San Francisco. Robin is known for the evangelical virtual community she created among the members.
