The GEMcar: One mini-car option

Here’s one of the options Lindi and I have considered on our way to becoming a single car unit. Our conclusion? This vehicle isn’t much more substantial than a bicycle. And you're out there with the big guys in the car lanes with a top speed of 25 mph. Plus the weather would get you. Instead of warming up like you do when you pedal a bike, in this thing you’d be sitting still and freeze to death in the winter. If we’re going to own only one car between us, this isn’t it. Cute, though. And it's completely electric.

Have you ever considered Flexcar?

Yes. Flexcar will probably be part of our strategy. From what I've heard so far, they're only 'worth it' if you need a car for a couple of hours. If you need one for a whole day or overnight, Enterprise comes out cheaper. I haven't actually made the calls and done the math myself yet, but this is what I've heard from people who've used both. But anyway, renting occasionally instead of owning is a great alternative.
