Free Rental Cars For Paris

Cute huh?
We have free (almost) rental bikes in Paris - Velibs (from velo- "bike" and libre - "free") and now, if Bertrand Delanoe, the Socialist Mayor of Paris, has his way there'll be 4,000 free electric-powered Autolibs put into service at the end of next year - 2,000 within the Paris walls and 2,000 in the 'burbs. They propose to have 700 rental stations built - 500 above ground and 200 below ground. The car to be used hasn't been decided yet. Perhaps it will end up being a doorless model like the Matra GEM on the right.231239-1659471-thumbnail.jpg
