Though details are scarce, the city of Charlotte is planning to launch a car-share program this summer.

The idea is to be somewhat like B-cycle, except with cars instead of bikes. People would be able to use an online platform to rent a car by the hour.

Cities like Austin, Minneapolis, Atlanta, Tampa and Denver already have car share programs.

Denver actually has four car-share services going already. The largest, Car2Go, has more than 450 vehicles on the road and charges 41 cents per minute plus tax. The city has even carved out special parking spaces downtown for shared vehicles.

The Charlotte City Council will hear more about the proposal at its Monday meeting.
