Previously, we’ve shown you Philly Car Share’s cars at Margarette/Orthodox, and now that we’ve found where they hide their cars at the Frankford Transportation Center, we have pics of those also. A Prius liftback and Dodge Caravan are available, although on our stop we only found the Prius. I found the pod a bit hard to locate. It’s located at 1A in the large parking structure next to the FTC. The easiest way seems to be to take the pedestrian stairs at the corner of Bridge and Bustleton that lead up to the parking garage. You can’t miss the signs.
PhillyCarShare is a non-profit organization that provides members with access to a fleet of vehicles on an hourly basis. A tromendous resource for city dwellers that wish to shed their car payments and insurance and embrace transit oriented development. A search of their website shows that for all of northeast Philly, and for the hundreds of locations citywide, the farthest Philly Car Share goes into the northeast is Bridge and Pratt streets. That speaks volumes to me. While Frankford is down, it’s on pace with the rest of the new city’s future.
