Chicago Tribune Profiles CNT Affiliate I-GO Car Sharing
Maybe you’ve heard of I-GO Car Sharing. Did you know I-GO® is an affiliate of CNT? Read all about Chicago’s non-profit car-sharing organization in this profile of I-GO CEO Sharon Feigon in today’s Chicago Tribune. I-GO is a perfect example of what CNT is all about: identifying ideas that can cut costs and environmental impact, testing those ideas in the real world, and bringing them to scale.
I-GO is more than a convenient, cost-effective, and fun service for people to use. It is also a transformational idea. Car sharing is a key component in retooling our transportation system into one that de-emphasizes auto ownership and instead uses resources efficiently, saves residents money, and decreases the region’s environmental footprint. I-GO sees itself as an extension of the public transit system, helping people cover the last few miles to their destination.
