Company Description

Karshare is creating a more sustainable, shared future, where having a car is seen as a choice not a necessity.

The UK’s first car sharing platform aimed solely at serving communities within their neighbourhoods and at airport locations, they enable those with cars to share theirs, and those without to quickly and easily rent one from someone nearby.

Car sharing means fewer cars need to be produced each year, and less congestion in our towns and cities - which both reduce carbon emissions and will play a key role in our transition to net zero.

Their smart technology and contactless process combined with a mission to empower local communities will help to define our tomorrow and enable a world to do more, with less.
