A while back, I read about a company which offered an interesting new
service. This company had established a fleet of cars in numerous
cities and numers parking places around those cities. The idea was
that one could drive those cars as one needed and then park the car at
one of the designated parking areas when one was through. This service
was available as a monthly membership fee of around $55 or for
different fees for other time requirements, such as $72 for only one
day's use. I cannot remember the name of the company! I've been
searching around and I can't find their website or anything about
them. I remember their logo was green and they had locations in
seattle, Boston ( I think), and other cities, too. Can you find me the
name of this company?

Dear awh1984-ga,

I have found two companies. One in Seattle and one in Boston (with a green logo).

Other companies in the US can be seen at the bottom of this page.

I hope this answers your question. If it does not, or the answer is
unclear, then please ask for clarification of this research before
rating the answer. I shall respond to the clarification request as
soon as I receive it.
Thank you

Where I live, in Edinburgh, Scotland, there is a very efficient
service like this called the City Car Club. There are similar schemes
all over the UK and they are very popular.

That's really neat. Thankfully, just today, it has been announced
they're starting something like this here in Austin.
