MIT’s Folding CityCar coming 2013

Check out a possible new way to get from point A to point B.  Some cities have started easy 1-way bike rentals (also called a bikeshare).  Washington DC has been quite successful with their Bikeshare program.  Similar to Zip Car, you pay an annual membership fee and a smaller fee when you want to use the bike or car.  MIT’s folding citycar might provide a means for transportation that is in between a car and a bike.  I’m very curious and definitely going to keep a watch for this in Boston.

Would anyone else try out the folding car?

  1. Not sure about the safety of driving something like that, but the thought of street parking not being a worry? Amazing. We’re in Lakeview and always end up driving around looking for a spot!

    This is so cool. When we toured MIT’s campus with Hubs, I felt a great energy there. Young smart people MUST help save the planet. Right now, it seems extremely messed up.
