Values and standards
Poppy covers the five biggest misunderstandings about car sharing:
Scalability and resilience
The term car sharing is relatively unknown. Yet car sharing has been around for decades. You can split it up into two big groups: peer-to-peer car sharing and one-way sharing platforms that offer cars to share. In the first group, people will share or make their personal car available. Think of carpooling or renting out your car via a platform.
Poppy belongs to the second group, where organizations provide a whole fleet of cars for their users. In this group, you can also make a subdivision between stationary based and free-floating. With the first group, you have to pick up the car at a predetermined location and also bring it back there. Think of Cambio. With the Poppy free-floating system you can pick up the car where it is and leave it wherever you want in the zone.
