Carsharing has gained interest during the last years. It is often described as the future of mobility and the starting point of a more ecological and sustainable economy. It is especially relevant when considering peer-to-peer (P2P) markets for cars. On one hand, this practice allows owners to decrease the idle time of their car, and to some extent, increase their revenue. On the other hand, it increases the mobility of individuals without cars. However, sharing a car on P2P markets is time consuming and often comes with administrative costs and legal constraints. These attributes can be seen as obstacles to the proper development of the market. In addition, supply and demand might behave differently than on a “traditional” market. Therefore, as a first step for a better understanding of P2P markets, this paper exploits data from the application Drivy in order to identify the determinants of supply and demand.
