April 2nd. Carsharing has come a long way since then.
I'll be posting a timeline of CarSharing Portland (CSP) soon and am planning a series of posts describing the founding and activities of CSP. To get notified when they appear, subscribe to this blog (link in the righthand column).
|Rex Burkholder and Dave Brook|
|Dave, Maren Souders and Russell Martin - the CarSharing Portland crew.|
|Maren, Dave & Russell.|
|Nina DeConcini tells another story. Steven Scott, Francie Royce & Ed Mcnamera are also visible|
|Long time carshare advocate, Steve Gutmann, shows one of the signs from the original carsharing office.|
Todd Boulanger, then with the City of Vancouver, Washington's transportation department, shows two no parking signs from the first on-street parking space reserved for carsharing vehicles.
Not able to attend the party but mentioned by many was Dr. Richard Katzev, Reed College psychology professor at the time, who inspired us and conducted the first independing evaluation documenting the benefits of carsharing to US cities.
