It seems as though the sharing economy relies on auto sharing particularly in order to drive the idea down to larger populations and Co-Wheels, a community car club available across the United Kingdom, is one example of that.
"A simple hourly and mileage charge covers fuel, tax, maintenance and comprehensive insurance - so all you do is the driving," they write on their website. "Cars are parked in designated parking bays and can be booked in advance or last minute either on-line or over the phone."
More and more, with the emergence of the established collaborative consumption movement, it's seeming like owning a care just isn't the way to go. But when other actors like government and auto industries catch on?
