Consider replacing the Shopper's Shuttle with "The Free Ride"

Please join San Diego, Santa Monica, Venice Beach and Marina Del Rey in bringing The Free Ride - http://www.thefreeride.com/about.php <http://www.thefreeride.com/about.php> to MP. We need clean on-demand public transportation instead of parking structures that facilitate additional traffic volume and subsequent air quality issues.

Imagine a Free Ride Shuttle service based in an underground parking facility at the new Library/Community Center. I envision the vehicles being powered primarily by solar energy and perhaps making their batteries available as backup power. I’m sure Stanford and Facebook could be persuaded to make their shuttles connect with this service in addition to helping fund the service.

I just read about the Shopper’s Shuttle. I had no idea it was available — not that I would use it just yet. I’m able to walk or bike for most of my transportation needs but I could easily envision taking the Free Ride shuttle with my wife to downtown dining instead of driving a car.
