One way to reduce the number of cars on the road is to share them. Carsharing programs don’t just cut vehicle numbers; when each trip has an obvious pricetag, their members learn to use their cars more efficiently.
According to one study, 57% of new carshare members in Switzerland drove less with the program and 50% in Germany.
In this video, Eric Kocaja of Flexcar (now Zipcar) shows us how to borrow a car. We also have a video on the magic of bikesharing in Barcelona.
