    This year’s bid by San Francisco and UC Berkeley to win the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Smart City Challenge failed, but the momentum generated by the collaboration has resulted in an agreement between the city and the university to continue to explore innovative urban transportation options, and ways that technology can improve city life in general. San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee and UC Berkeley Chancellor Nicholas Dirks signed a memo of understanding Sept. 2 to develop and test new programs to improve urban life for the residents of San Francisco and ultimately cities around the country and world.

    You don't need to be a rocket scientist to figure out why UC Berkeley has designated parking areas for Nobel Laureates: if there's one thing harder to snag than a Nobel prize, it's a parking space on a UC campus. Car sharing programs on campus could be a part of the solution. Researchers at the TSRC joined with Zipcar to ask people at universities across the U.S. and Canada how car sharing programs influenced their behavior.
