Hand in Car, Get Free Public Transportation
Posted on July 11, 2011 by yiqi
If you live in Murcia, and you’ve got a working car that is fully paid for, and you’re tired of the high cost of maintaining said vehicle, “the government of Murcia is giving citizens lifetime passes to its brand-new tram system in exchange for turning over their cars.”
That’s only the first part of a 3-pronged campaign to reduce driving in the city. “The next phase involved the city displaying all the cars that were exchanged and gradually disassembling them so as to make them ‘disappear’… The third and final piece of Murcia’s effort, meanwhile, was a humorous initiative in late June to demonstrate the difficulty of parking in the city.”
Further, they’ve developed a series of super cute videos. First video:
Do you think similar measures would work in Singapore?
Drivers: Would you exchange your car for lifetime public transport privileges?
