To help jump-start car sharing in downtown Santa Barbara, the City Council voted to set aside as many as 10 parking spaces — six downtown and four in the outlying neighborhoods — for car-sharing companies. City traffic engineers cited statistics provided by the car-share industry indicating one car-share vehicle can eliminate as many as 15 vehicles on streets and roads. Car sharing is taking place in and around City College and UCSB in hopes of providing for the transportation needs of students while minimizing actual ownership.
