'Sharing is caring' aren't just empty words for us – DriveNow brings you flexible mobility, as well as sustainability! When you – just like many others – share cars, you are making a valid contribution towards car-freer cities.  More carsharing, less cars  Do you enjoy DriveNow's flexibility so much that you often leave your own car at home? Or are you a car-free household (now), because you can just as easily get from A to B on a bike, with public transport or by carsharing? If so, you're part of a growing trend. As a number of scientific studies show, a shared car today replaces several private vehicles. In Vienna[1], for example, every carsharing vehicle replaces five private cars. This results in an economy of 44 million kilometres for the Austrian capital per year. Furthermore, one third of participants in a survey carried out in London[2] say that they do not own a car because carsharing gives them the possibility to use a car whenever they need one. Less private cars means that fewer parking spaces are needed and more space is freed up as a result. For example, in Munich[3], an area of 12,000 m2 has been freed up, while in Berlin[4], 5,600 m2 are now free, because one free-floating shared car replaces three times as many private vehicles.  Carsharing's sustainable effect
