Apartment dwellers.
It's a bit of an intractable problem. In my estimation, rents are already too high, and it's not just because the owners are greedy. There are high costs associated with owning and maintaining apartments because many tenants abuse them. The only thing treated worse than a rental car would be a rental domicile. People tend not to take good care of things they don't own (the reason why socialism\communism can never work on a large scale).

Perhaps sometime in the future it will be in the apartment owners interest to provide charging as a service to tenants, but currently 97% of vehicles sold are ICE, and there's little incentive to invest in the fringe option.

I'm a rental property owner and I know that renters are typically less responsible in all areas of their life than homeowners. Sure, there are fantastic renters (I was in an apt 2 years ago), but people who are highly motivated and responsible don't tend to rent for long.
