Car Sharing pilot projects like Witkar began as early as the 1960's and 1970's, but modern car sharing programs launched in 1987 in Switzerland and later in 1988 in Germany, and came to North America via Quebec City in 1994. [The first successful car share in the USA, Portland Oregon's CarSharing-PDX

As of January 1, 2012 - based on data provided by Susan Shaheen, University of California, Berkeley - 25 U.S. carsharing programs claimed 718,596 members sharing 9,817 vehicles; and 92,118 members shared 2,526 vehicles among 19 carsharing organizations in Canada.
