Problem: More expensive to park a car than to rent one

In this posting by Kevin Kelly, I noticed this quote:
"It now costs more to park a car at one airport than to rent one at the other end. To my twisted mind, this indicates that machines (taking the automobile as a benchmark) are now self-reproducing so fast we have reached a transition point where machines are cheaper than the empty space they fill."

As I read this, I thought of Mobility as one solution to solve the problem. Here’s an extract from the company’s corporate mission:
"As a leading CarSharing company Mobility provides a varied pool of cars and boasts the largest network of stations in Switzerland (some 1,050). These services are based on economical, technological and ecological efficiency."
