Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Networks and Systems book series (LNNS, volume 51)


This thesis was conducted on one of the sustainable solution in mobility-shared, short-term service of using cars- car-sharing. In view of the growing popularity of car-sharing services in Polish towns and wide variety of functioning systems, the article presents current state of car-sharing systems in Poland. Authors present the review of Polish market. The analysis was performed on entities providing car-sharing recommending their services and their variety in depending upon registration in system, data verification, type of system and method of rental, localization, used fleet vehicles and cost of services.
