4 Car Sharing Service Business Success Stories [2022]
Start A Car Sharing Service

Globally, people are looking for the most cost-effective way to move about. The increasing cost of car ownership has forced people to car sharing services.

Car sharing is where vehicle owners offer their vehicles for others to rent for a short period. The arrangement saves gasoline, parking fees, maintenance costs, taxes, and other expenses. Also, car sharing is a practical alternative for those on a budget who do not necessarily need full-time access to a vehicle.

According to experts, the global car-sharing market has exceeded 2 billion and will keep growing at a CAGR of over 20% for the next decade. In that regard, starting a car-sharing service presents a lucrative business opportunity.

With enough capital, you can purchase multiple vehicles and launch your car-sharing service.
