Click here for a link to what I have always thought would be a good idea for Lake Worth...a ZipCar outlet

Basically it's a service that allows you to rent cars by the hour.  I am not sure about the minimum requirements for franchises, or if this is something that could be sponsored by the CRA or the City.  The idea is to provide access to a car when needed, without people having to incur the usual costs of auto ownership - insurance, monthly payments, maintenance, etc.  Many larger cities and college campuses are going to this.

* self-service access to cars 24/7
* low hourly and daily rates include gas and insurance
* reserve online or using your mobile device – in seconds
* cars located strategically around town
* good for the environment
