Hi Daniel,

Vancouver has a very successful car-sharing system (I think it was the first english speaking car co-op worldwide)- the founder is also very helpful and active in promoting car sharing across North America. (Up in Roberts Creek, we've been toying with asking them to park a car near our cohousing community, as it will make administration/insurance issues much simpler.) see

Over here in Switzerland, where we're located temporarily, there is an amazing car sharing system called mobility ( I think you need to be able to read German or French to wade through the site. It's probably a bit high tech for your needs, but it's a great example of a country-wide system that works amazingly, with 1700 cars available to members (I think that the Vancouver car co-op has about 90 vehicles.)
