The Car Sharing Shootout: Autoshare vs. Zipcar

No, it’s not carpooling. Yes, it can work for TTC users. And don’t even mention the word “rental.”
Car sharing comes with its fair share of misconceptions, and the recent entry of U.S.-based Zipcar into the Toronto market creates further confusion. Once the sole domain of AutoShare, which was established in 1998, both companies offer similar services but with some key differences. Though car sharing has been successfully implemented in Europe for years, it’s a relatively new concept to North Americans, who sometimes have intense personal attachments to their vehicles.
What exactly is car sharing, and what’s the difference between AutoShare and Zipcar? Torontoist took both companies for a spin, and we’re here to remind you what your mother always said: it’s good to share.

When asking Torontonians how they thought car sharing worked, the strangest answer was also one of the most common. Many thought it was a carpooling system, where a few people would show up each morning and drive to work together in a reserved car. Others saw no difference between car sharing and car rental, and most daily TTC users never even considered it.
To use the network, you must join as a member meeting minimum age and driving record requirements. For many, that’s the last human interaction they have since the system is (for the most part) entirely automated. When you need a car, it takes seconds to reserve it and often the car can be available immediately. Members just head over to their closest location, unlock the car and drive it off the lot. When finished, the car is returned to the same lot and the member locks it up and walks away.
This convenience requires planning, however. The vehicle must be returned within the reservation time or else somebody who’s booked it after you might be left waiting. Reservations can be easily extended if there are none following yours, and given enough warning, the company will attempt to make alternative arrangements if caught short. AutoShare and Zipcar claim that it is very rare for a car not to be on the lot when it’s supposed to be.
Both companies bristle at the word “rental,” which is conspicuously missing from their promotional material. Where car sharing really shines is for the short-term jaunt, billed hourly and including fuel and insurance. Daily rates are available, but are on-par or slightly more expensive than car rental companies, unless you factor-in the insurance that rental companies offer as an extra but that is included in car sharing. Rental companies also allow the customer to return the vehicle any time during the day, but are in limited locations and require an interaction with the agent in-person.
When asked for examples how frequent TTC users could benefit, reps from Zipcar and AutoShare had identical responses. Trips to IKEA are familiar to most, and both representatives described the appeal of pulling-up for a date in a Mini Cooper. Allegedly, your reservation might then have to be extended until morning, if you catch their drift. Torontonians seem to be embracing the concept — Zipcar announced this morning that Toronto was their fastest market ever to attain 1000 members.

Probably the most fascinating trait of car sharing is anthropological. The concept works because it is operated by its users and virtually self-policing. Since the car is only in the condition the last member left it, members will report infractions or damage incurred by the previous driver lest they be dinged with the charges. Steep fines are levied for behaviour that degrades the experience for others, whether it be leaving garbage in the car or not returning it on time. Members keep the gas tank above a minimum level (which they don’t pay extra for) and AutoShare even knocks a few bucks off your bill on top of the reimbursement if you take the car through the wash.
I was actually surprised to hear both car sharing companies somewhat play-down the environmental aspect, though they do claim that each vehicle takes at least ten cars off the road. Many of the vehicles offered, like the diesel Smart and the hybrid Toyota Prius are notorious for their impressive fuel economy, and we are all familiar with both high fuel prices and Toronto’s distressing smog problem. “It is obviously an important thing for us; it’s why we started this,” says AutoShare President Kevin McLaughlin, but he then goes on to mention that environmental benefits are more of an appreciated result rather than the primary appeal.
“Everyone loves to be a passive environmentalist,” says Zipcar’s Matthew Malloy. “It’s like curbside recycling. It’s more of a behavioural change; people also drive less because they pay by the hour.”
Though the environmental angle was what originally drew me to car sharing (I’m already an AutoShare member, and Zipcar provided me with a membership to research this article), I was surprised to find myself actually having fun picking a car à la carte for each trip and driving something different each time. Visiting friends and family in a Smart, a hybrid Prius, and even a cute little Yaris instigated a barrage of questions from everyone, and a few people have now tapped my newfound authority for advice when looking to buy a new car.
Car sharing comes with a lot of information to process for the new member, and the websites of both companies can be a task to decode. Here’s how Zipcar and AutoShare compare, and we’ve provided a handy chart highlighting the differences [PDF link]. I should mention that the rates are the most confusing aspect to decipher here, but they’re calculated automatically and presented when making a reservation.
Membership
Zipcar charges an annual $55 membership fee and $30 one-time application fee for the Occasional Driving Plan, but also gives new members a $50 credit. AutoShare does not charge an annual fee, but levies a one-time $125 fee (which includes insurance approval and license check), plus a $250 deposit that is refundable when a member leaves AutoShare.
AutoShare also grants some initial discounts for co-habitating couples and claims that the average member makes-up for the higher initial cost in two to three months of usage. They also offer a $50 credit if you refer a friend; half to you, and half to the new member.
Zipcar doesn’t charge a monthly fee, and AutoShare’s monthly fees depend on which of their three plans a member has chosen, depending on how much they drive. The plans range from $0 to $25; the more expensive reflecting cheaper hourly and per-kilometer rates.
Both companies require a relatively clean driving record and a class “G” license. Zipcar’s minimum age is 21, whereas AutoShare’s is 25 until October when they lower it to 23. I found the application process for both to be simple and my applications were approved very quickly.
The Cost to Drive
Zipcar generally is a few bucks more expensive than AutoShare per hour, but how they administer their prices differs. Zipcar ranges from $9.35 to $15 per hour, depending on the car, but includes 150 km per 24-hour period (25¢ each subsequent kilometer). AutoShare ranges from $5 to $9.50 per hour depending on the plan chosen, and two of the plans add 18¢/km unless on a daily rate when it is 10¢/km. AutoShare adds another hourly buck for premium cars like the Matrix, Prius or Mini, but knocks-off 2¢/km if you’re using one of their hybrid vehicles. Vans are 3¢/km more. AutoShare’s daily rate ranges from $45 to $67, depending on the plan, and Zipcar’s daily rates span $59.50 to $105, depending on the vehicle. Zipcar also charges a higher rate for their premium vehicles depending on the car (usually about $1.75 more).
Still with me? AutoShare even offers non-peak rates from midnight to 7 AM (Zipcar doesn’t). Members don’t pay the hourly rate during these times; only the per-kilometer cost, except for members of the Simple Plan who pay $4.50 hourly. For shift-workers or night owls, this could be an unexpected treat.
AutoShare bills members with a monthly invoice; Zipcar charges a credit card immediately following a rental.
So, I Reserve the Car and Just Drive it Off the Lot?
Yup. AutoShare members are each provided with a special key that opens a lockbox in each lot. The ignition keys are retrieved and returned to their respective box. The key is tiny and I’ve had little qualm with having it on my keychain other than adding bulk. The system is low-fi and works well.
Zipcar heavily promotes their method, and rightfully so. Each car is unlocked with a keycard, which is no larger or thicker than a credit card and fits snugly into any wallet. The card is held-up to the RFID sensor in the windshield and the vehicle unlocks if it’s been reserved by you. The keys are permanently tethered to the steering column and the keycard is used to lock the car during the reservation as well. If a member loses their keycard, each vehicle can be remotely unlocked over the phone with a Zipcar representative. AutoShare says that they are testing new technology likely to be rolled-out in the winter, but didn’t specify what this would be.
Though AutoShare’s system works perfectly fine, I admit to falling in love with the keycard. It’s flat and easy to store and got a few fascinated stares when I was using it on Bloor Street. Leaving the keys in the car takes some getting used-to, but it’s nice not to have to carry around a set of car keys. When the member is finished with the car, it’s parked back in the same spot and you simply lock it and walk away. AutoShare members are required to log their final odometer reading into a log book which takes only seconds.

Newcomers to Toronto have plenty of options for getting around town, including an extensive public transit system, dedicated bike paths, or owning a car. Over recent years, however, a popular new option has been added: carsharing.

You don’t have to own a car to drive a car, and it works out cheaper. Sometimes it is useful to have the option of taking a car, say for a move, a shopping run, making your next appointment in good time, or getting from one Toronto neighbourhood to another. Fortunately, all these needs can be met by the excellent providers for carsharing in Toronto.

Очень важная для вас статья:  Самый дешевый и простой сотовый Канада

Getting a car that suits your needs at the exact moment you need it is one of the advantages of living in a large city such as Toronto, now the fourth-largest city in North America. No tax or insurance payments, no hundreds-of-dollars services, and no paying for an overpriced parking space in your building. Whichever carsharing option you choose, you will have the option of simply reserving a specific car online and renting it by the minute, hour, or day.

Why use carsharing in Toronto?

In a big city like Toronto, carsharing is a cost-effective and eco-friendly alternative to car ownership. Perks include the ability to choose flexibly without the fixed costs usually tied to a car – you can put that saved money into traveling more of Canada! Memberships with all providers include gas, insurance, maintenance, and roadside assistance, though there are differences between the providers. The application process always includes a driver’s license check, and only drivers with a clean abstract may be granted a membership.

Want to get out on the street? Here are the most popular options for carsharing in Toronto.

car2go

As of June, 2020 car2go is ceasing operations in Toronto, blaming city council for passing amendments to a pilot project that restricts on-street parking.

Who? car2go is the only service in Toronto offering one-way service. This means you don’t have to return the car to your original pick-up-location. Within the car2go Toronto home area, cars can just be left in any legal parking space. Cars can also be dropped at the airport or be left in designated lots around the city.

car2go has expanded its fleet in Toronto from the ubiquitous smart vehicles to include Mercedes-Benz SUVs and sedans as well.

How much? Using a car2go Toronto smart car costs $0.41 per minute, capped at $15 per hour and $59 per day. For the four-seater SUVs and sedans, the rate is $0.47 per minute, or $19 per hour and $79 per day.

Highlights: One-way trips are the big advantage in convenience for car2go. The car can be returned any time. Members also commend that there is no requirement to refuel the car when it is dropped.

Zipcar

Who? Zipcar is currently the largest car-sharing brand in Toronto. The fleet is large and well distributed across the city, but cars must be picked up and returned at designated parking spots. This means you always need to return your Zipcar to the location you started from. It also needs to be returned at the time specified in the reservation.

Zipcar offers a variety of models by popular manufacturers such as Ford, Honda, Volkswagen, BMW, and Jeep.

How much? Zipcar’s most popular plan is $70 per year (plus $30 registration fee) with rates from $9.25 per hour. You can also go for a $7 monthly plan.

Highlights: Membership is universal, so you can use Zipcar anywhere they operate in the world. Zipcar replaces all vehicles regularly, so you’re unlikely to be driving a car that is more than two years old.

Enterprise CarShare

Who? Another large brand operating in the city, Enterprise CarShare offers two-way carsharing in Toronto. There are many pick-up spots available across the city, and cars must be returned to their original location at the time specified in the reservation.

Enterprise CarShare offers a wide selection of car models, including Toyota, Mazda, and Kia.

How much? Enterprise CarShare in Toronto offers a membership at $45 per year, with daily rates from $9.25 and daily rates from $69, plus a $29 application fee.

Highlights: More expensive prepaid monthly plans for frequent drivers waive the membership fee and reduce the hourly and daily rates. There are also weekday specials bringing the rate down to $6 per hour.

Who? Turo is the genuine peer-to-peer provider for carsharing in Toronto. It goes both ways, and so not only can drivers sign up to book a trip, but car owners also offer up their car for rent. This offers for a lot of flexibility, but availability depends heavily on the number of members in your neighbourhood.

The range of cars is as diverse as you can find on the streets of Toronto.

How much? Price, pick-up, and drop-off location are dependent on the agreements between members.

Highlights: Turo is a genuine sharing economy company, offering plenty of flexibility for carsharing in Toronto due to the direct interaction between members. It’s Airbnb for cars!

Car2go launches short-term car rentals in Toronto, joining Zipcar, Autoshare, even taxis in moving market

You can rent it by the minute, drop it in any designated parking lot and don’t even have to book ahead.

Car2go is the latest car-sharing service to hit Toronto, joining Zipcar and AutoShare in the growing the market for short-term car rentals.

As previously reported in The Star, the Daimler-owned company confirmed Wednesday it is entering the Toronto market.

Starting June 30, customers will be able to rent any one of its 250 cars parked at 200 city-owned lots south of Eglinton, between Jane and Victoria Park Ave.

The service will boost the number of short-term rental cars available from all three rental services to nearly 1,000 vehicles.

Unlike existing players, car2go can be rented by the minute, instead of the hour. And the car can be picked up in one lot and dropped off in another.

The service provides only 2-seater Smart Fortwo cars, which are ideally suited to short trips, such as grocery shopping, cross-town business meetings, or even picking someone up at the airport, said car2go spokesperson Katie Stafford.

The auto sharing network in Canada is undergoing a shakeup.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car Canada Co. is purchasing Toronto-based AutoShare CarSharing Network Inc., as the concept of vehicle sharing expands as members of younger generations of drivers seek options to buying vehicles to avoid insurance payments, maintenance costs and the high up-front or monthly costs of owning their own vehicles.

Enterprise, which operates National Car Rental and Alamo as well as its own brand, also offers car sharing and car pooling programs and a ride-matching online site that connects drivers with passengers.

AutoShare was established in 1998 and has more than 12,000 members in the Toronto area. It will continue to operate under its current brand name.

The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Enterprise operates 542 rental branches in Canada.

Avis Budget Group Inc. took over car-sharing firm Zipcar last year.
