Members can access vehicles through a direct key or combination transfer from the owner or through operator-installed technology that enables “unattended access.” Although P2P carsharing is more commonplace in the United Kingdom, Netherlands, Germany, and other parts of Europe, the market continues to grow steadily in North America. For instance, the P2P carsharing operator, Turo, expanded into Canada in April 2017, becoming the first American P2P operator to enter an international market....
