I was told that electric car-sharing is not a feasible option because it's too hard to make sure the car remains charged in between reservations - i.e., if I take the car out to run errands and use up all the battery, then it will take several hours before someone else could use the car. Which wouldn't make car-sharing nearly as convenient. And while the city's not ruling out bike-sharing in the future, they said that at this point there isn't enough of a market for it - it's pretty expensive for users, and there aren't the tourists here like there are in Chattanooga who want to ride bikes down by the river and throughout that city's very flat downtown. However, River City Outfitters does offer bike rental, and UT has a very small bike-sharing pilot program going, so such things are around in a limited form.
