Carsharing is a type of car rental; however, there are some differences between carsharing and car rental. In carsharing, members can book cars by the hour or day, last minute, or in advance. It allows you to access a car at any hour, not just during business hours, and you can reserve your cars online or through mobile apps. Vehicle locations are distributed and easily accessible via public transport. Users can organize as a company, public agency, cooperative, or ad hoc grouping.
