Zipcar co-founder Robin Chase makes the case for car-sharing as the solution to global gridlock.

About Robin Chase

If she weren't a proven entrepreneur, you might imagine Robin Chase as a transportation geek, a dedicated civil servant, endlessly refining computer models of freeway traffic.

She co-founded Zipcar in 2000, introducing car-crazy America to the concept of non-ownership. When she founded the company Buzzcar in France, she flipped that model, giving car-owners the opportunity to rent out their vehicles to friends, neighbors and complete strangers. Call it peer-to-peer auto rental.
