City CarShare

Huh. I wonder if City CarShare would work in London:

Car-sharing allows you to use a car when you need it without incurring the fixed costs of ownership. City CarShare provides a network of vehicles parked in neighborhoods throughout San Francisco, the East Bay, and the Peninsula. Cars are available to members on a per-use basis. You pay based on how much you drive: $4.00 per hour (half off between 10pm and 10am) and 44 cents a mile. The fees include gas, insurance, maintenance, everything! [about]

There's already a similar scheme operating in London: http://www.smartmoves.co.uk/

Also sounds similar to Zipcar (www.zipcar.com), which operates in Boston, NYC, and DC. Here in Boston they seem to be doing pretty well, and they've been around for a couple of years. I can't tell immediately if Smartmoves and City CarShare use the same nifty proxcard and realtime wireless system that Zipcar uses to manage access to vehicles.
