      World Streets Annual New Mobility Country Reviews : State of Carsharing (Car
      Clubs) in the UK: 2009
      Carsharing has been a slow starter in the UK, lagging considerably behind
      the leaders. However in the last half dozen years the operators have gained
      considerable momentum and are now entering into the mainstream of practical
      transport innovation and day to day practice. Read what the main national
      grouping has to report on this subject for 2009.

      One has to ask why the great delay? Might it be because the British are more
      devoted to their own cars than the rest of the OECD nations? One has to
      doubt it. Might it have to do with the ambiguity of words. The British call
      what the rest of the world knows as carsharing by their very own phrase: Car
      Clubs. (Carsharing being their terms of choice for ridesharing or
      carpooling).

      Whatever might be the case, carsharing by whatever name is coming along
      quite nicely throughout Britain today, as you will see here in the report
      from the non-profit umbrella group.
