Car Sharing is a vehicle used - and driven by - multiple people, shared. This is distinct from Ride Share, which includes traditional taxi companies as well as Uber and Lyft, where the car is driven only by an operator or owner. To clear that up for anyone confused - Uber and Lyft are not car-sharing, they are ride-sharing.
