A lot of videos on YouTube complain about how China’s bike sharing had become a problem since the sidewalks are littering with unused bikes. This gave me an idea, why not replicating China’s bike sharing problem into something good for car drivers! Imagine cars could be available everywhere so everyone can use their smartphone to unlock, pay, and drive away for a day. After a person is done with the car, he or she can just park the car in any parking lot nearby.
Of course, car sharing might come with more problems for the car operators/lenders than the car renters because cars are more expensive to maintain. Also, car operators need to make sure each car needs to be covered by insurance policy. This could also get rather expensive for the car operators. Nonetheless, if someone could use some good math skill or an artificial intelligence algorithm to figure out the bottom line, then I guess if the bottom line is good then there shouldn’t be a problem to allow car sharing en masse.
