Autolib' coming soon to Paris! It's like a Velib - but with cars!
I'd heard this was coming to Paris, but I had no idea it would be so soon. After Googling "autolib' in Paris" I learned that 66 electric "Bluecars" and 33 stations will be available for use starting SUNDAY - with more on the way if the test run proves successful. C'est fou non?
I'm very interested in the logistique of this thing - I think it's a great concept, but I'm a little skeptical as to how it will actually work out. I'll keep you posted as I watch the construction (and usage) move forward. Didn't they already try it out in Germany? I guess if it worked for the Germans, it should work for us, right?
ps - can we please talk about how they are calling them "Bluecars"... en anglais??? I'll bet the Académie Française is having a shit fit.
