Shared-car service could be coming to county

Silver Spring residents looking to gradually lose their addiction to automobiles should get help soon as the county looks to establish its own shared-car service in several urban areas, specifically downtown.
The Montgomery County Department of Transportation will soon accept bids from private companies to establish a "carshare," a short-term car rental service commonly designed to complement public transportation. The carshare could be available at county-owned parking facilities and streets by the end of the year.
