How many days out of your life have you been in a 5 seater car. What if you could save that extra money in the next few months or less. Would you be interested in downsizing on those days where its just you all day and nobody else. Or if your in the mood for a road trip and don't have enough for a plan ticket. And the usual trip would cost too much gas. Come rent a single, or 2 inline seater travelers car.  One seat for the driver, up to 2 wide rear seats. Pedal or switch to morors and go the max speed!!!

Describe who will use your solution (1,000 characters)

All USA citizens with current drivers licenses. Those with fines and warrants will need to be adults, an may opt for my RCU units and follow bicycle laws.

Describe your solution's stage of development

  • Initial Design - you are still exploring the idea and have not tested it with users

I am alone at the moment, hoping that the logical move will help FORD and other companies join behind me. Lets make the states fun again.

Size of your team or organization

  • I am submitting as an individual

Funding Request

  • $100,000

Rough Budget (500 characters)

$9.99Vistaprint, a brick suite to start building in with $50,000 limit. The use of GoDaddy to make a website linked into facebook. The remaining will be used to gettools and the materials to make the redesigned cars

Describe how you would pilot your idea (1000 characters)

If helped tools and materials will be bought and the units will be built. The first 7 will be the test cars will be the prototype, be run through testing. And clients suggetions on the website. While that is running other products can be made for households and external items. Such as custom designed mobile device cases.

Describe how you would measure the success of your pilot (1000 characters)

How many more trips are taken, are you enjoying the. New design? Is it more comfortable than a standand car? Where have you traveled now that you can do it easily?

Yes since i will have it on a renting platform. It will be able to sustain itself. As the owner a renting system will help me achieve a more person2person relationship to clients/drivers.

Hi Robert P Tweed , it's Jasmine one of the online facilitators for the challenge this year. Thanks for continuing to contribute! Your ideas really give new perspective to mundane daily tasks. Would this be available to rent for an extended period of time like through car rental agencies, or is it more for short term travel like blueindy?

They would have both short and long availability. And yes similar to blueIndy, with different types of 'real mini cars.' Scan your registered liscence with my personal/ trusted place like Enterprise perhaps. Scan in liscence when ready to drive on the secure touchscreen and go. When romoved the drivetrain would lock and timer stop. Until the next day you needed use it, repeat the driving setup. An off you go.
