  • Hah, are you serious? Any metro area in the Southwest the 'most sustainable'? The miles driven per person per year plus the heroic amounts of air conditioning they use will offet many times over any nice bike lanes they may have set up.

Zipcar 2012 Future Metropolis Award and Index Zipcar 2012 Future Metropolis Award and Index Presentation Transcript

  • Zipcar Future Metropolis Index Research Commissioned by Zipcar February 2012 [1]
  • An Overview and Key Findings The Future Metropolis Index recognizes cities that demonstrate smart urban planning and policymaking. America’s cities are the economic engines of the country and a driving source of optimism. San Francisco is the 2012 leading future metropolis. With high marks across all five dimensions – innovation, sustainability, vibrancy and creativity, efficiency, livability and optimism – San Francisco ranks at the top in the overall index. The research also shows that urban living correlates with higher levels of optimism about the economic future. Americans living in metro areas are more likely to be optimistic about job prospects than those living in non- metro areas. confidential 2
  • Key Findings (cont’d)  Cities along the East and West coast top the list. Following behind San Francisco are Seattle and Washington, DC, along with Portland, Boston and New York respectively.  The most sustainable cities are in the West with higher percentages of bike lanes (Tucson) and hybrid cars (San Francisco).  The Northeast can boast the most efficient cities. Washington, DC, New York and Boston top the list with their public transportation systems; Atlanta and San Francisco follow closely.  San Francisco shines vibrantly, with its arts-related businesses and jobs and many park acres across the city.  El Paso leads in livability. El Paso grabs the number-one spot as most livable due to its lowest homicide rate and second lowest burglary rate, while it falls in the bottom half for all other dimensions.  Atlanta is at the top tier of innovative cities with the most universities and hot spots per 100,000 residents; Pittsburgh follows closely. confidential 3
  • Methodology Overview Data collected for 36 U.S. cities (based on population size) Publicly available data was used for most sources and converted to a per- capita basis, to equalize and standardize scores Data was rescaled to further equalize/standardize scores Data was collected July 2011 – January 2012 Survey and research were conducted by KRC Research, a full-service market and opinion research firm confidential 4
  • Methodology Overview (cont’d) Cities were evaluated on the following dimensions as they are values that align with Zipcar’s mission:  Innovation was measured on number of free, publicly available wireless hotspots per 10,000 residents as well as number of accredited post- secondary degree-granting institutions per 10,000 residents.  Sustainability was measured on miles of bike lanes and paths per 100,000 residents and percent of hybrid cars among the total registered cars.  Vibrancy and Creativity were measured on park acres as a percent of city land area, arts-related jobs per 1,000 residents, and arts-related businesses per 1,000 residents.  Efficiency was measured on the number of workers using public/commuter transportation as a percent of the total workforce and the number of public transportation rides/passenger trips as a percent of area population.  Livability and Optimism were measured on unemployment rate, violent crime rate (homicide per 100,000 residents), and property crime rate (burglaries per 100,000 residents). confidential 5

  • Zipcar Future Metropolis National Survey Results [ 19 ]
  • Key Findings Half of Americans foresee a brighter economic future in their communities, but are doubtful their communities will be safer from violent crime. – Americans are more optimistic about future employment prospects and income growth than they are about a decline in crime rates in their communities. • One in two Americans (52%) say they agree (either strongly agree or somewhat agree) that household incomes in their communities will increase in three years, and nearly as many (49%) also agree that job opportunities will also rise in their communities. • That said, only a third (35%) believe the amount of crimes will decrease in their communities and nearly half (45%) say they disagree that crime rates will decrease in their communities. confidential 20
  • Key Findings  Optimism is higher in metro areas. Americans living in metro areas are more likely to be optimistic about job prospects than those living in non- metro areas. – Half of those living in metro areas (53%) say the number of job opportunities in their communities will increase compared to four in ten of those living in non- metro areas (39%). – More than four in ten (45%) of those living in non-metro areas disagree that household incomes will increase compared to a third (34%) of those living in metro areas. Optimism Around Job Growth 60% 40% 20% 0% Metro Areas Non-Metro Areas confidential 21
