The station-based car sharing market is expected to witness a steady growth till 2026, owing to increased customization of services and an option to choose from a variety of vehicles. Station-based car sharing services require their customers to drop-off the vehicle at the same station from where it was picked up. This provides several advantages to users such as increased accessibility with designated free parking spots and advanced booking options.

Station-based services also allow customers to rent vehicles for long-distance commutes, coupled with an option to pay by the hour. This type of car sharing service saves vehicle reallocation costs that are incurred by one-way car sharing service providers, fueling the market growth.

The growing demand for the one-way car sharing market can be attributed to the increased flexibility to drop off a vehicle at a different location from the pick-up point. One-way car sharing services allow users to utilize car sharing services, coupled with public transport, such as trains and buses.

For instance, Sixt, a global car sharing service provider, allows its customers to rent cars from convenient locations such as train and bus stations across the city. This allows customers to utilize one-way car sharing services in conjunction with public transport services. 

The car sharing market is driven by rising urbanization and lack of proper public transportation facilities in several countries across the globe. Overcrowding of public transport facilities, owing to an increasing number of passengers, is compelling the demand for alternative transport facilities such as car sharing services.

Various modes of private car sharing services, such as P2P, station-based, and free-floating, provide individual users with a variety of options to avail car sharing services, thereby reducing the number of personal vehicles on the road.
