Create a LSV "district".
In an area with stores, parks, and potentially other public amenities such as libraries and city offices, create a more walkable area so that the area becomes more of a gather place.
Try to move the car parking to the outer edge and try to discourage car travel. Replace the car travel with Complete Streets and an electric local LSV taxi system.
Ideally, the taxis will have family friendly rates such as $1/adult/one way trip with kids being free when accompanied by a paying adult.
Potential Implementation Details:
- At taxi cab pickup locations, have a smartphone scannable label that notifies the taxi company that a patron is waiting.
- Create a smart phone app, so that the patron can request a taxi. The GPS within the smart phone would automatically notify the taxi cab company of the patron's location
The following are a few of the many options that are available for multi-passenger LSVs that a city can choose from, depending on the image that the city would like to create:
