HANC's monthly (except August) general membership meeting is held downstairs at the Park Branch Library, 1833 Page Street (between Cole and Shrader) on the second Thursday of the month, beginning at 7 pm. Our meetinngs are open to the public and free to attend
If the city rented the parking spot outside your home to your neighbor for $150 a month there’s a good chance you’d
be pretty annoyed. But if ten of your neighbors sold the private cars they parked on your street you’d probably be much more enthusiastic, and wouldn’t much mind that their new shared car gets a reserved parking space. In fact, both those trends are part of San Francisco’s nearly two-year-old On-Street Car Share Pilot Program. Finding the right policy for on-street car-sharing is the subject of HANC’s July 9 membership meeting, part of our series on the impact of the “sharing economy”.
Panelists at the meeting will include Elliot Martin, a research engineer with UC Berkeley’s Transportation Sustainability Research Center, Andy Thornley, the project analyst in charge of on-street car-sharing in San Francisco, and a representative from City CarShare.
Two recently designated on-street parking spaces for City CarShare on Cole St at Carl St lie empty awaiting a red curb paint.
