The I-Go Car Sharing Program

5:00 P.M. - Burnham Conference Center at APA • 122 S. Michigan Ave., Suite 1600,
Sponsor: American Planning Association
Free event
CM 1.0

Car sharing programs, growing in popularity across the U.S., are becoming an important tool to reduce car use and congestion in urban areas. I-GO Car Sharing, a Chicago-based Sharon Feigon, I-GO Car Sharingnonprofit with more than 6,000 members, provides mobility when needed without car ownership expenses. More than half of I-GO members either sold or put off buying a car when they joined. Where car sharing is available, demand for parking goes down, and land previously devoted to parking can be put to other uses. Less parking reduces the costs of building and owning housing and commercial developments, and fewer cars reduces CO2 emissions and other pollutants. Sharon Feigon of I-GO Car Sharing will provide background on how car sharing works, talk about its many benefits, and discuss car sharing innovations that link it more closely with a variety of transportation alternatives
