Car sharing, which can be defined as sharing vehicle services amongst members, thereby giving them access to a fleet of vehicles, is important in promoting the use of sustainable modes of transport. Even though the car sharing market in Germany has grown considerably in recent years, customer take-up is still relatively low. Only 0.16 % of driving licence holders in Germany have joined a car-sharing organization. As a result, the central objective of this report is to assess ways of promoting car-sharing services further. Therefore, the report begins with an investigation into the current situation in Germany, for which a survey addressing all German Car Sharing Organizations (CSOs) was conducted. Additionally, a household survey was conducted to evaluate the demand for car sharing. Finally, research into the development of car sharing in other countries was undertaken via the Internet and a brief survey to CSOs in some of those countries. Recommendations for the further development of car sharing are given on the basis of the findings from each of these studies.
