Passenger cars and light trucks are the main modes of transportation in most industrialised countries The vast majority of car trips in metropolitan areas are drive-alone trips with only one person in the car and vehicles are used for only about one hour per day on average Carsharing is one of many car-based mobility services that have become available for people that want to complement other modes of transportation with car-based mobility occasionally Examples of other car-based mobility services include traditional car rental, carpooling, ridesharing, taxi and ridesourcing services Many of these mobility services aim to decrease the cost of car-based transportation, create convenience through fewer ownership responsibilities, as well as reduce congestion and environmental impact

Carsharing is a decentralised car rental service focusing on short term rentals that supplements other modes of transports including walking, cycling and public transport Carsharing aims to provide an alternative to individual car ownership without restricting individual mobility by providing affordable access to cars Moreover, carsharing aims to both reduce distance travelled by car and the number of cars in use Carsharing services thus create environmental, economic and social benefits Carsharing is a membership-based service available to all qualified drivers in a community Car Sharing Organisations (CSOs) offer members access to a fleet of shared cars from unattended selfservice locations Usage is billed by the minute/hour and by distance driven, with rates that include fuel, insurance and maintenance Today, most CSOs use station-based networks with roundtrip rental This operational model requires members to return a vehicle to the same designated station from which it was accessed Some CSOs have also started to offer one-way carsharing that enables users to return the car to any station operated by the CSO Another model that is rapidly gaining in popularity is free floating carsharing, which enables members to pick up and drop off cars anywhere within a designated area The ability to access available cars instantly without prior booking and no need to schedule return time make this type of service attractive for short trips.
