Zipcar's Purchase by Avis Car Sharing Success or Failure -
Interesting article from @EMBARQNetwork. Let’s hope it’s success not failure. I think they have done an interesting thing to the urban space. Here’s to them getting back to innovation.

32 bikes in the parking space of 1 car? Pretty smart design from Seoul.
This is excellent.

This is an interesting view, and I love transit maps. Probably from staring at them blankly for long periods of time while I try to figure out where I am.

Greater-Seattle Transit Maps -
From the Human Transit Blog site, a short piece on the new Seattle network maps. Nice to see something geared towards the commuter.
"The distinctions on this map are entirely about what matters to the customer, especially the person who wants to see the all-day transit network that is ready to liberate your life, not just your commute. Red means fast and frequent. Blue means frequent. Green means all day but not frequent. And if you want to see peak commuter express services, which would obliterate the legibility of this map if they were included, see another map or individual timetable."

Always happy to see this, just wish that we had the pre-tax benefit to match the need.
