About the CSA
What is carsharing?
Carsharing is a membership-based service that provides car access without ownership. Carsharing is mobility on demand, where members pay only for the time and/or distance they drive.
Every carsharing organization (CSO) is different, but carsharing has a number of distinct characteristics that are the same within every CSO:
goal & mission of the CSA
Our goal is to maximize the environmental, social and financial benefits provided by carsharing organizations by promoting and providing education, services and awareness of socially responsible carshare programs. Provide an active forum and supportive environment for the carshare industry and its constituents.
Benefits of Carsharing
Carsharing provides a crucial infrastructure for cities and has significant environmental and social benefits to the communities in which it operates. As a business/organizational service, it reduces the number of vehicles driven in our cities, eases the burden on the public road infrastructure, reduces greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants, and reduces the cost of transportation for the local populace.
Carsharing is the only shared mobility option that provides the user with the opportunity to drive the car to where they want to go. It is the only option that is a reliable and flexible alternative to car ownership and plays the pivotal role as part of a sustainable transportation network.
