Car Share Benefits

The concept of car sharing provides individuals with a sustainable transportation alternative to driving a personal vehicle. As a result, less personal vehicles are on the road, and multiple trips are made with the same car sharing vehicle daily so the vehicle is not being underutilized like a private vehicle. Over the past 10 years in Canada, car sharing membership has grown by 30.3%, reducing the need for members to buy a private vehicle(1). Car share households on average drive fewer kilometers than do non‐car share households(2). (1) Source: Shaheen, Susan, and Adam Cohen.
