ADOPT THE CAR SHARING FORMULA RATHER THAN CAR OWNERSHIP

2010-03-22

Car sharing provides you with the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of using a car for some of your travel needs, while sharing the cost with other people (source: www.mobili-t.com).
Owning a car costs approximately $9,000 a year in different related expenses (CAA Québec). For people who use a car only once in a while, the cost of ownership can be excessive. In this sense, for annual distances of less than 8,000 km, auto sharing makes more financial sense than owning a car. By adopting the auto sharing formula, rather than ownership, you can save more than $5,000 a year (source: Communauto).
