    Flexcar, a car sharing company which enables people to rent fuel efficient cars (usually by the hour) parked near work and/or home & which has proven successful in various cities, is coming to Baltimore.

    City is negotiating an agreement with the company currently, and Johns Hopkins University is to get 4 hybrid cars parked on campus as the first stage in the process. Public input will be invited on placement of additional cars.

    Thinking of moving to Baltimore from DC but still plan to commute? Need or want to get back to DC on the weekends?

    You really CAN get around without a car! –Follow my 5 steps, and use MARC/ Amtrak as your personal taxi.

    1. Buy a MARC monthly or weekly pass (tickets can be purchased in whole or in part with Metrochecks) and commute by MARC during the week. (If you’re a Federal worker, your Metrocheck subsidy helps a heck of a lot towards defraying the cost.) When MARC’s not running on the weekends or holidays, just show your pass and ride most Amtrak regional trains on your regular route for no extra charge!

    2. Live in Mt. Vernon, Bolton Hill, or Station North for easiest/ quickest access to Penn Station.

    3. Use your monthly or weekly MARC pass for any Baltimore city transit service (Metro subway, lightrail or bus or Neighborhood Shuttle) at no extra charge. Same ticket is also good for the base fare on all Metrobuses in Maryland, the District of Columbia, and Virginia; and for the MTA Commuter Bus Route #991 between the Monocacy MARC Station and the Shady Grove Metrorail Station.

    4. Subscribe to Amtrak’s Rewards Program – ride Amtrak frequently and earn points toward free rides along the Eastern corridor. Easy access to points north: Philly, NY, Boston!!! Or take the train and arrive within minutes at BWI, and fly to your destination!

    5. Watch out/ advocate for Flexcar to come to your neighborhood, so you will have the option of renting cars by the hour when you really need them.

    Contact me at greencitybaltimore@yahoo.com for further details/ information. Much of this information can also be found on the Maryland Transit Authority website, http://www.mtamaryland.com/, or by contacting your Amtrak station agent for further details about using monthly or weekly MARC passes on certain Amtrak trains on weekends/ holidays.

    Maryland State ‘Clean Cars’ Bill sent to Governor O’ Malley for approval– Governor expected to sign

    Legislation would tighten emissions standards by model year 2011. Maryland will join California and other states that have emissions standards tighter than those required by the federal government. The Maryland bill would not affect older cars, but it means dealerships in Maryland must start selling the cleaner cars starting with the 2011 model year.

    BMC Board Calls for Strategic Plan for MARC article
    from Baltimore Spokes’ “Geeklog”
    Saturday, June 23 2007 @ 08:45 PM EDT
    Contributed by: The human car

    Focus on Improved Service, Potential for New Stations
    Baltimore, MD June 20, 2007 In anticipation of growth related to Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC), the elected executives of the Baltimore region sent a letter to Governor O’Malley asking the state to collaborate with the Baltimore Metropolitan Council (BMC) in developing a strategic plan for MARC commuter rail service in the Baltimore- Washington corridor. While economic expansion, new jobs and new residents will bring greater prosperity to the region, they threaten to strain public infrastructure, especially transportation facilities.

    Amsterdam Bicycles
    (82 pictures of bicycles taken during 73 minutes on 9/12/06 in Amsterdam, Netherlands)
    [What I found interesting was the collection of multiple riders on a bike, it seems hitching a ride on a friends bike is not uncommon in Amsterdam.]

    1. Formally Dressed Bicyclists – A whole set of Amsterdam bicyclists can be seen dressed very formally, like suit and tie for men, and dresses for women. NOBODY in San Francisco ever bicycles in a suit and tie, or in dress. But during this one hour photo shoot, I saw 20 or more incredibly well dressed bicyclists meander by.
    2. Multiple Riders on One Bike – With or without any extra seats or foot-pegs for the extra riders, you will see 1 or 2 or even 3 extra passengers side-saddle, balancing precariously, standing, sitting, whatever it takes so they can hitch a ride with a buddy or parent. This is so common I had to stop taking pictures of it because it would prevent me from capturing some of the other trends. Almost 50 percent of the bicycles I saw had more than 1 person on them. In San Francisco the only time you would ever see two passengers is a small child on the back in a $300 government approved safety chair, and the child would be wearing a helmet (because it’s the LAW). Click here for an unrelated rant on helmet laws. Which brings us to the next difference……
    3. No Helmets EVER – It is amazing to me coming from San Francisco, land of 100 percent helmet covered heads, but in all of Amsterdam (population 750,000) there is not one bicycle helmet found anywhere in the city. Not ONE!! Contrast this with San Francisco, for anybody under the age of 18, there is a Mandatory Helmet Law, and everybody above 18 wears helmets anyway. Now faced with this shocking disparity, I think any reasonable person must come to the conclusion that either the people in Netherlands do not value the safety of their children, or San Francisco bicyclists are clumsy pansies with soft heads and weak minds that must be protected from hurting themselves no matter how much it infringes on individual rights. Click here for an unrelated rant on helmet laws.
    4. Dogs on Bikes – Amsterdam bicyclists seem to commonly bring their furry friends along with them on the bicycle rides. I think that’s nice.
    5. Human Powered Generator (Dynamo) Bicycle Light – This one really does mystify me, some of the other trends more more sense to me. EVERY bicycle in Amsterdam is outfitted with a dynamo powered head lamp, where the rider has to pump extra super hard and the head lamp shines dimly. If you are younger than 35 years old, you probably have never seen one of these in the USA, we have very bright headlamps for bicycles that add much less weight and do not increase resistance. I haven’t seen a single dynamo powered bicycle in San Francisco in over 20 years. Once I saw a “Simpsons” (animated comedy) episode where Bart turned on his dynamo bicycle headlamp and could barely make forward progress-> in the USA these dynamo powered headlamps are considered a JOKE, but almost a quarter million bicycles in Amsterdam all have them.
    6. Spectacular Gigantic Unbreakable Security Chains – Almost all of the bicycles in Amsterdam are what I would call “beaters”, which means they are beaten up, scraped, bent, out of tune, and have bad paint jobs. At the same time, all these beaters have these GIGANTIC security chains that look like they should be the chain on the anchor of an oil tanker ship. The ton of high tensile, military hardened steel in each security chain must be worth more than the bicycle it is keeping safe! The only other type of bicycle lock was a type of sliding circular rear wheel lock that was once sold in the USA (I owned one when I was 10 years old). The circular sliding read wheel locks lost popularity in the USA because they offer almost no security at all: 1) the criminal can always lift the bike and walk away with it, and 2) it is always easy to “guess” the combination. Strange dichotomy of lock choices in Amsterdam.
    7. ….And More… – Several other trends are shown in the pictures below, including bicycles are commonly painted one big bright aftermarket color, Amsterdam residents like using their cell phones while riding their bikes, many bikes are outfitted with big buckets on the front for serious industrial deliveries, and there is a whole trend of this “small frame” bicycles with “untraditional” proportions (very small wheels and then very tall seats to make up for it). You can view the pictures below to get an idea.

    Plug-In Hybrid Vehicles (PHEVs)
    A PHEV is essentially a regular hybrid with an extension cord. You can fill it up at the gas station, and you can plug it in to any 120-volt outlet By incorporating a plug -in system , your car essentially becomes an electric vehicle with a gas-tank backup. So you’ll have a cleaner, cheaper, quieter car for your local travel, and the gas tank is always there should you need to drive longer distances.

    Biodiesel is a fuel that is made from soy beans, or waste vegetable oil(cooking oil). It can be used in place of petroleum diesel fuel for vehicles or heating oil for buildings. Unlike petroleum diesel, biodiesel is a renewable resource, and it creates less pollution than petroleum diesel. It can be used alone or in combination with petroleum diesel, or with heating oil. Generally, no expensive modifications to the engines are required. This makes it easier to integrate biodiesel into current systems than other alternative energy sources, which often require new equipment. .
