Chapter 4 Impacts of Car-Sharing focus group member reported that "You really think about using the car. It becomes a really thoughtful process." Another respondent reported that "After being a pedestrian here for so long and then having car-sharing, it's made me think more of the car as a tool." A possibly negative feature of current car-sharing operations is that members are highly sensitive to the consequences associated with exceeding reservation times, and do feel under significant pressure to return the vehicles within the specified time frame. Does car-sharing membership affect long-term residential location decisions? Nearly three-quarters (72%) of PhillyCarShare members say that car-shar- ing locations are important to where they choose to live (Lane, 2005). In Quebec, the figure is 50% (Communauto, 2004). These findings were not specifically substantiated by the data collected for this project, but one focus group member reported that "If I ever move out of Boston, I want to find a place that has a car-sharing program because I don't want to buy a car. I've never owned a car and I don't want to." References American Automobile Association (2003). Your Driving Costs. Available at Baum, H. and Pesch, S. (1994).
