Cities manage a large fleet of vehicles in their daily operations and the vehicles are often unused, especially outside of office hours. In Finland some municipalities have made vehicles they manage available also for the citizens. We analyze how the operationalizing of such schemes we call hybrid car-sharing affect on the one hand, the use for administrative purposes and on the other, residents’ use. Based on the analysis, we propose practical guidelines on setting up such schemes. Hybrid car-sharing schemes are practical especially in areas where traditional car sharing might not be financially viable. The schemes can for example increase the multimodality options for residents' travel chains, offer possibilities to get acquainted with electric vehicles or allow for car-free lifestyles in sparsely populated areas.
