In the U.S., a more comprehensive approach is needed that offers a range of integrated “door-todoor” mobility services that enhance connectivity, provide customer flexibility, and potentially increase transit ridership.

Carsharing (or short-term auto use) organizations provide members access to a fleet of shared vehicles on an hourly basis, reducing the need for private vehicle ownership. Since 1994, 50 carsharing programs have been deployed in North America—33 are operational and 17 defunct. As of July 1, 2008, there were 14 active programs in Canada and 19 in the United States, with approximately 319,000 carsharing members sharing more than 7,500 vehicles in North America.
