It might’ve been rainy last Tuesday in downtown Brooklyn, but I couldn’t help seeing bright days ahead: beaches, mountains, sunsets, the warm, fluorescent glow of Ikea.

My inspiration? The brand new car share community, Carpingo.  We’ve known about the idea of time shared cars for a while, but Carpingo puts its own unique spin on the concept, and as locals know: Brooklyn is a unique spin all on its own.  That’s right, Carpingo is the first ever, Brooklyn based car share community–made by Brooklynites for Brooklynites–which means its customized to cater to the reasons that drive us to drive (so to speak).

Many well known Brooklyn locals gathered in front of Borough Hall to celebrate the official launch of the website and community, including borough president, Marty Markowitz.  A ceremonial ribbon cutting over one of the Carpingo car models bought from western Motors.

New users who sign up right now can expect all kinds of happy new website bonuses, like driving credits and maybe even a waived yearly fee (if you change over from your other car share membership… shhh!) I can’t tell you how excited I am to get behind the wheel and put some miles between me and the steamy urban jungle before this summer is over!
