What is carsharing and how does it work?

Based on a simple principle: individuals gain the benefits of private car use without all the costs and responsabilities of ownership.

Operating in 33 countries (Europe being the largest carsharing region measured by membership), with more than 4,8 million members sharing over 104,000 vehicles (2016 Innovative Mobility Carsharing Outlook).

Roundtrip / Return carsharing: users pick up and return their shared vehicles at the same station location.

One-way carsharing: users can pick up a shared vehicle at one location and drop it off at another.

Free-floating carsharing: users locate and pick up a shared vehicle nearby via a smartphone app – there are no dedicated stations.

Peer-to-Peer carsharing: users pick up a vehicle from a private car owner.
