Is car-sharing the next way to drive in the city?[Essay] by Rudy Guénaire


Rudy Guénaire was part of the "Alternative Management" third year program in HEC in 2011. He also has a Master degree in Mathematical Modelling from La Sorbonne. He is very interested in finding innovating management solutions. He is now starting his own company in the fast-food industry.

It seems that Parisians haven't been really convinced by the idea. Why is car-sharing an interesting concept? What can prevent car-sharing from being a success?
