I saw this in the paper, but forgot about the online version.
I went “car free” for five days a while ago, and earned $50 for my trouble. The current thought is to use this as seed money for a “yellow bike” sharing program for Ganges, here on Salt spring Island. Recent work has put a hold on plans for such a program, but my intention is to develop it a bit more over the rainy season, then get it rolling in the Spring.
I recommend going “car free”. Walking is great way to get some exercise and connect to the neighbourhood and the nature around us.
