Both transportation and car production generate a large share of greenhouse gas emissions, leading to negative environmental impacts. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a shortage of vehicles for rentals, reducing college students’ access to vehicles when they need them. QuickTrip aims to solve this problem through a marketplace model. QuickTrip is a mobile car-sharing platform that allows students at the University of Washington in need of a car to rent a car from their friends, making the benefits of point-to-point transportation accessible to a larger audience.
