If you need to borrow a car to run a quick errand, the South Waterfront participates in a car-sharing program called Zipcar, with three stations where you can pick up or drop off a fuel-efficient, hybrid Super Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (SULEV). It’s estimated that each shared car takes about 15 cars off of the road. Assuming each car taken off the road averages 25 mpg, and the owner drove 12,000 miles per year (US average), then Zipcar has removed 96 million pounds, or 144,000 tons of carbon from the air.
