Car Sharing in Europe: a Multidimensional Classification & Inventory
Based on the results of the STARS Deliverable 2.1, the following five types
of car sharing have been identified in Europe:
Roundtrip station-based: bringing back a shared vehicle to the same parking location.
Roundtrip homezone-based: bringing back a shared vehicle to the same neighbourhood.
Free-floating with pool stations: a shared vehicle can be returned at different spots, but always in a dedicated car sharing hub/station.
Free-floating with an operational area: a shared vehicle can be left atany parking place in an operational area.
- Peer-to-peer car sharing: shared vehicles among private drivers, either in (closed) community groups or peer-to-peer.
