3.0 The Human Factor in Vehicle Usage

3.2.Common Cars:

Some commercial companies have attempted to solve parts of the mass transit dilemma through a system using common, or shared, cars located at numerous sites within densely populated areas (A Common Cars). Current opinions of those using Common Car systems regarding availability and condition are not favorable in comparison to personal cars. Most people will not want to depend on a vehicle which may not meet their standards of sanitation, cleanliness, mechanical condition or appearance and Common Car performance is no better than the existing surface transportation facilities on which they operate. Common Car businesses are not believed to be substantially adaptable to a large percentage of surface transportation users, however, there may be a potential tie between these types of services and the HPR System. (See Section 12.8 A Common Cars). Common Cars are no safer, faster or more efficient than standard cars.
