Car-Sharing: Where and How It Succeeds 5.4 Contributions of Partner Organizations The following sections examine in detail the contributions partner organiza- tions have been making to further the success of car-sharing. They combine examples derived from the literature search, the survey, and the partner interviews to provide a rich menu of assistance that could be offered to nascent car-sharing operations. To focus prospective partners on what others have done in their industry, the following sections present profiles of five different types of partners: Local governments Transit agencies Employers and businesses Developers Universities Each profile then outlines the strategies used by the partner organizations to help promote car-sharing. The profile begins with a discussion of the goals and benefits the partners hope to achieve. It describes how partners got started and who made the first contact. Extensive examples derived from the various partner organizations are given under the heading Types of Support. Support includes marketing; administration; parking; financial contributions; memberships; planning, policy, and tax issues; and transit integration. This chapter focuses on successful examples of partnerships with car-sharing operators. The following chapter, Chapter 6, discusses the barriers that the partner organizations faced in implementing their partnerships and how they were overcome. Page 5-7
