San Francisco Car Sharing: Stakeholder Communication
This document is a series of questions and answers released by the city of San Francisco in order to clarify the details of the city's car sharing fleet.
This document asks a range of questions, from clarifying terms in the Request for Qualifications to determining where users can park the vehicles. This document is meant to clarify the needs of the city to potential car services.
This document could be useful to city planners attempting to find a car service to help them implement a fleet pool sharing program. By clearly enumerating what they are looking for, the city of San Francisco narrows down the number of respondents in order to receive more qualified respondents.
Fleet pool sharing eliminates unnecessary cars from the road, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution. Air quality increases, while traffic congestion deceases. Fleet pool sharing programs are also sustainable for city budgets, in that maintenance and purchasing costs are greatly reduced.
Greenhouse gases are a part of the Earth's atmosphere and are both naturally occurring and the result of human chemical processes. The most common greenhouse gases are carbon dioxide, water vapor, methane, nitrous oxide, ozone, and chlorofluourocarbons. These gases trap heat and thus contribute to the warming of the planet.
