Information Brief: Carsharing for Business – Zipcar Case Study & Impact Analysis


Business carsharing (or corporate carsharing) is a form of carsharing that enables commercial businesses to reduce or eliminate private vehicle eets typically maintained for business purposes. It may provide exclusive-use vehicles to clients that are shared among employees and departments or it may offer shared vehicles where the client accesses the vehicles as part of a larger carsharing eet (i.e., employees use the same vehicles that are shared by individuals and/or other business members) (Shaheen and Cohen, 2012).
