ownership is more about status symbol whereas car sharing is more about getting
access. Car ownership symbolizes freedom and independence.Car ownership costs
are higher because of insurance rates, parking fees, depreciation and wear and
tear of car. Car sharing comes with a small membership fee and numerous
discount packages suiting to the demand and use of the customer. People for
whom money is an important criterion would definitely go for car sharing as it
saves a lot of pennies. Elite sections of the society would never like this
idea of car sharing as to them authority, independence and status carries more
value than money. For instance, Zipcar which runs in Los Angeles charges
frequent drives $8.10 per hour from Monday to Thursday and $9 on Friday and
weekends. Zip car does bill the customer for tolls but one does have to pay for
gas and parking which saves a lot of money and adds another financial
incentive. One just has to pay an initial membership fee of $25 to become a
member. Owning a more expensive car comes with a higher loan, insurance and
fuel costs- ride sharing makes more financial sense. The balance between
convenience and cost is a key consideration for car sharing people and makes
them feel satisfied by saving lot of pennies. Car owners for whom money saving
is not important, go with owning expensive cars because that is what makes them
feel proud and satisfied. Shared mobility services can help in reducing
environmental pollution due to decreased number of vehicles on the road. A
study on Car2go- the largest car sharing operator in the world, estimated a
decrease in greenhouse gas emissions. For people who are physically disabled,
car sharing can be a good alternative rather than owning a car. Many car
sharing companies reward you with benefits on each ride. The reward points can
further be redeemed for airline and amusement tickets which make the user
willing to take more rides. Referral system also rewards the user with points
which can be redeemed by the customer whenever he wants to. So also for senior
citizens who do not want to depend on others, car sharing can be a good option
to commute rather than dependency on younger ones.
