Not so fast
Problem Focus: Just in case you are not aware of it, carsharing is already a well proven New Mobility form, with services today active in hundreds of cities world wide. After several decades of experience, failures, successes and continuous fine tuning and upgrades it is safe to say that the product is ready for the market.
But . . . The truth is that most cities are not at all ready for the product. The great majority of cities everywhere have an insufficiently strategic understanding of what carsharing is, how it works, and what is needed from its key partners – and most notably those at the level of the city and local government – if it is to make its full contribution to the city and those who live and work there. . Successful carsharing does not do itself. It requires active and informed partnerships, with the city in the lead.
