Vehicle sharing program manages the whole process through SMS.

Leading mobile commerce company Netsize has launched a peer-to-peer car sharing social network in France that allows users to rent a car simply by sending a text message. CityzenCar is the SMS-based service that simplifies the car rental process for consumers and enables 12,000 members in 2,000 French cities to conveniently book a vehicle with their handset.
