WeCar is one of the many car sharing companies in the USA - believe it or notDr. Susan Shaheen and the team at Innovative Mobility Research at UC Berkely released the latest totals for North American carsharing:

As of July 2008, 19 U.S. carsharing programs claimed 279,174 members sharing 5,838 vehicles. As of July 2008, 39,664 members shared 1,667 vehicles among 14 carsharing organizations in Canada.

That's a 23:1 national member to vehicle ratio in Canada and 47: 1 ratio for the US.

And rumors of impending moves by car rental companies into carsharing are keeping the news media busy.
