Ciao amici,

e da ore che cerco la parola corripondente a car pool. Mi potete dire se c´è qualcosa di appropriato a questa parola.
Si potrebbe anche dire car sharing in inglese.

    I haven't heard of "car sharing" in English. There is "ride-sharing", it's an organized carpool (organized by several employees at a business, for example).

    Noi Italiani lo chiamiamo proprio car sharing:

    Ciao caro amico Paul!

    A "car pool" is a group of people working the same hours and living and working close to each other, who take it in turns to drive the group to and from work. From the link that you gave, it appears that car-sharing is where several people own the same car and take it in turns to drive it.

    Ho ragione?

    Hai ragione Brian, that looks like Zipcar, a similar thing we have here in NY.

    I think carpool might be translated as carpool:

    Il Progetto Carpooling ha la finalità di promuovere, in collaborazione con l'Amministrazione Comunale e con l’Azienda del Trasporto, l'uso intelligente dell'automobile. In particolare si propone di aumentare il numero di occupanti delle auto private, per combinare i percorsi comuni.
