Funded for one year, I'd take a Vegas bet it won't get renewed for another year...If the car gets dirty, if someone steals the seat and puts it on craigslist or if a person exceeds the "three hours max" what exactly happens? Most of these folks have very little money, especially if they're saying they can't afford the bus...
Alternatives such as a shuttle service or free Uber/Lyft and bus passes occur to me.
I'd rather see free charging stations installed--even without free electricity, just making the chargers available. That would allow people to buy cheap, used LEAFs to get to work and back. I've worked with lower-income workers; having a reliable car to drive to work, especially outside the times buses run, would be an enormous boon to many of them.
