Steve Banfield is the man leading ReachNow out of the planning room and into the future to provide a new take on point-to-point car rentals, and it turns out it’s an approach that is not only smart, but also promises to be classy, easy, spacious, benevolent, and perhaps even someday autonomous! We chat about the fleet of BMW and Mini vehicles that will be rolling out in Portland this week, how they can help meet the transport needs of low-car lifestyles, and what it’s like to take your mom to the top of the Space Needle. “Free-floating car share” for the win!
Also: Brock and Aaron did the #freshhopcentury!
