Driving in cities is a major hassle, not to mention a major expense. The mayor of Paris is looking to easy urban transport with Automobiles-en-Libre-Service, basically an inexpensive version of Zipcar.

Paris started a similar service with bikes last summer. It has been a huge success with over 5,000 rental stations around the city.
