If they've got them at UNC and Duke, can N.C. State be far behind?

(OK -- stop it.)

Better question: Is the Triangle's big city big enough for car-sharing a la zipcars?

(Update: Per the comment below, there's more than one car-sharing vendor in the land, not just the zippy one.)

Topic's on tap June 18, 1 pm, at the Urban Design Center. (h/t: Urban Planet.)

Downtown Raleigh Alliance and Triangle Transit also involved: Details below.

from the Urban Design Center:
