How to avoid a car rental crisis
Cars are everywhere.
Cars are not only an important part of the landscape of the city, they’re also the backbone of our economy.
In a city with such a large number of people and transportation options, it’s hard to not see the benefits of car ownership.
The number of cars on the road has tripled in the past 10 years.
And as cars get more affordable, the number of renters has also increased.
