Car-sharing services have become more and more popular. However, if you are a heavy user of these services, you have probably experienced that car-sharing vehicles are not always available when you need them. To solve that issue, we have developed an on-demand-service to deliver car-sharing vehicles. We took a detailed look at the problem, developed a technological solution, investigated the business model implications and tested the service in real-live in Stuttgart. Results of our experiments show that there is a need for such a service and that it can increase the reliability of car-sharing services—and might help reduce the barriers towards adoption.
