    Though you are correct about gas becomming increasingly a burden on many…I know the effects personally as I live in Toronto and have my own car and it has now come to a time that with parking and growing gas prices combined, I am no longer able to drive to school and work. I have resorted to public transportation, like many others in this fair city. But as for your comment of sharing cars this would never work in a material driven society such as our own. Cars are a sign of success and status!
    And though gas prices are soring I assure you that on the weekends no one leaves the car at home! The idea of sharing a car is great it cuts down on expenses, it cuts down on pollution etc. But it is very unrealistic…people have lives and unless those who are sharing the expense of the car are going to the exact same places at the exact same time..it is never going to be the answer! One will always be forced to find another method of transportation…which then again contributes to the household expenses defeating the entire purpose of sharing a car!
    The concept is great…but when but into practice it is a flop!

  3. A site called Nirbi.com can help you find someone to drive with. If you're going somewhere, you just add your route to the site and you can see people who need a ride.
    Riders don't even need to have the same start or end point as the driver–they just need to be on the way.

    I think car sharing is a great concept that is a growing trend all over the world. I have a link on my site to carsharing.net that provides a lot of information and links to all the possible services available throughout North America.
    If you think the concept may not work, then think about all the companies out there that implemented it, like Zipcar (US), Flexcar (US), or even Streetcar (London). If you take this route, you can easily reserve a car for a specific time, day, whatever and then you wouldn't have to worry about all the extra costs like gas, insurance and even parking.
    It's one step to becoming somewhat environmentally friendly. It's only a matter of time to see larger usage of hybrid or electric cars
