Communauto is not officially a not-for-profit organization. It is a corporation registered under the name Communauto Inc. That said, we are a mission-driven company that provides a service with social, urban, and environmental goals rather than aiming strictly for profit.
We strive to strike a balance that allows us to remain profitable, so we can continue to grow our service without being dependent on other sources such as government funding. The last thing we want is for carsharing to become another way of subsidizing the automobile. There are many other places in our communities where government funding could be better spent.
