Jonathan Morris πŸ₯‘ @JMorrisCALπŸ”Finally, owning a twenty year old car is still much cheaper than renting a car for once and a half weekly full day u twitter.com se. I priced it out when making a decision.
Jonathan Morris πŸ₯‘ @JMorrisCALπŸ”But, limited to 3 - that car intense commute will NEVER take transit if it means a parking ticket. #berkmtg
Jonathan Morris πŸ₯‘ @JMorrisCALπŸ”E.g. only one of us has a car-intense commute every day. So, the cars sit on the street since we don’t have a drivew twitter.com ay. We could get away with three permits, because one of the cars is always used to commute during enforcement
Jonathan Morris πŸ₯‘ @JMorrisCALπŸ”Roommate who commutes during the day - drives to job sites and on weekends to visit family and distance gf who can’t twitter.com afford to live close where transit is accessible.

Berkeleyside @berkeleysideπŸ”Most speakers so far are arguing that Berkeley needs to be competitive and not force cannabis businesses elsewhere. #berkmtg
Jonathan Morris πŸ₯‘ @JMorrisCALπŸ”Why sharing doesn’t work for us: two who take transit to work only use cars on the weekend for surfing/skiing/camping twitter.com /fishing. Often carpooling to take extra folks to different places.
Jonathan Morris πŸ₯‘ @JMorrisCALπŸ”C) Council asks why people living 8 to a house can’t share cars. Here’s my experience: one roommate works at night, twitter.com sometimes takes transit, sometimes has to drive if it’s a late night, two take transit during commute hours, and one drives to work during commute hours.
Jonathan Morris πŸ₯‘ @JMorrisCALπŸ”B) Environment. The intent is to take excess parked cars off the street. This results in more ample parking, that I twitter.com NCREASES vehicle miles traveled. Low numbers of available parking spaces encourage the use of alternate modes of transit
Jonathan Morris πŸ₯‘ @JMorrisCALπŸ”Problems: a) inequity. Those who can afford their own home are privileged. Those who have to bunk up are screwed. #berkmtg
