Car sharing complements free rapid transit

The Estonian capital Tallinn introduced free rapid transit at the start of 2013 in a bid to decongest its streets, which are often clogged by commuter traffic. But car sharing agreements can also help, the liberal daily Eesti Päevaleht recommends: "Because what happens when a family wants to do a major shopping trip or leave the city for the weekend? In this case a car is the only solution. For that reason car sharing is becoming a viable alternative in a growing number of Western European cities. These cars can be rented out for a limited period of time, and can be picked up at different locations in the city. The people who rent them out pay for fuel and maintenance. And for the most part the whole thing can be organised with a single telephone call. This idea can solve traffic problems without people having to give up owning a car altogether."
