What we do

Karshare is the UK’s first car sharing platform aimed solely at serving communities within their neighbourhoods and at airport locations.

We connect renters with owners, giving those with cars the opportunity to earn extra income while those in need of a car can quickly and easily rent from their local community.


About us - man in car

Through car sharing, we are creating a more sustainable, shared future, where having a car can be seen as a choice, not a necessity.

We don’t own vehicles or pay for parking spaces – we are entirely community-led. 

Our smart technology and contactless process combined with a mission to empower local communities will help to define our tomorrow and enable a world to do more, with less.

Our purpose

Did you know the average car in the UK sits unused 96% of the time? With 38 million vehicles parked on our streets, Karshare is unlocking a huge fleet of vehicles through community car sharing. 

It is our purpose to power the move to net zero by making it easy to use a car without owning one, through community car sharing. We have a vision to halve the number of vehicles on the road by enabling privately owned vehicles to become shared vehicles.

what we do

Our technology

Our unique KarshareGo technology is a keyless module, which is installed in all our vehicles, enabling renters to instantly book, locate and safely unlock their car via our app using facial recognition. No queues, no counters, no hidden costs: all our rentals are hassle-free and entirely contactless.

KarshareGo also includes driver telematics, which generate a score to help our community drive safely and keep an eye on mileage and fuel consumption during each rental.
