AutoLib green car rental scheme hit by vandalism in Paris

One month after its launch there are reports that Paris’ innovative car rental scheme has been hit by vandalism problems. One quarter of the 200 cars have had to be withdrawn as a result of vandalism and break downs, leaving just 150 cars in circulation.

A rough start indeed. But I remain faithful that AuotLib will *must* succeed.

    I said it before and I'll say it again, AutoLib is doomed unless the cars are kept clean inside and out. The company must hire people to clean each car in the fleet at least 2 times a day. Would you patronize a hotel if it didn't clean its rooms after each customer check-out? Same concept.

    I don't know, Henry. Zipcar (http://zipcar.com) succeeds by obligating renters to leave the car clean. If they don't, they get charged for this on their credit cards. Maybe Autolib needs to do its research.
