Themes

In what ways is this project unique and creative? Edit

Since its founding in 1994, Communauto has been a pioneer as the oldest and one of the most important car sharing services this side of the Atlantic.

As one of the largest companies of its kind in the world, Communauto defines itself as a social and environmental company.

Car sharing is a less expensive alternative to owning a car and easier than renting one. With this service, we hope to offer a practical and economical alternative to owning a vehicle. In doing so, Communauto helps to reduce the number and use of cars on the road.

What is the social value of this project? Edit

Its many benefits have attracted more than 20,000 people in Quebec and this is just the beginning. An annual survey confirms the level of user satisfaction and word-of-mouth has been the main reason for growth.

What is the potential of this project to expand and develop? Edit

Communauto believes in the growth of the self-serve car movement.

Started from practically from scratch in 1987, the car sharing movement continues to grow. There are currently more than 200 organizations that provide this service in more than 650 cities to more than 200,000 users. They are mostly in Germany, Switzerland, Holland, Austria, Canada and the US, but services can also be found in France, Britain, Ireland, Denmark, Italy, Sweden and Norway.
