Chances are you’ve not only heard of car sharing, but used it, too. Car sharing offers many more options than just brands like these, and it’s going global. Now, thanks to Collaborative Fund, you can learn about all the different ways to save money, stress, and time wasted with parking by going for a quick, interactive, virtual tour that will provide you with what you need to know about sharing a car, and what options are best for you.

This movement has gone global, and helps your life, others, and the environment too. And the Collaboartive Fund has created an interactive infographic that is an entire webpage, rather than a static image, that you can view here.

The Collaborative Fund breaks down car sharing into three categories: Peer to Peer (P2P), Business to Consumer (B2C), and Not-for-Profit or Co-Op (NFP). The first consists of a reserve of cars owned by a community. You’re probably familiar with the second, which includes companies like Hertz or ZipCar. NFP works through a local organization whose aim is to change a community’s driving habits rather than making a profit.

Drive your car along the bridge by scrolling to the right on your screen (see image), and you’ll get a timeline and country-specific information about how consumer behavior has changed recently when it comes to purchasing and sharing cars. For example, the average car is only used for one hour a day, and costs $715 a month (that’s $611 more than a monthly unlimited use MetroCard). And, every rented car equals 15 fewer owned cars burning up fuel.

It’s no wonder that car sharing is spreading across the world – statistics show that those who share rather than own spend 31% less time driving, which means more time at your destination.
