Communauto was founded in Quebec City in 1994 by Benoît Robert, its current CEO. Cycling advocate and environmentalist Claire Morissette played a major role in its evolution starting in 1995, when Communauto established itself in Montreal as a private company.

Communauto acquired Paris, France-based Mobizen in 2012,[3] merged with Ottawa-based VRTUCAR in 2016,[4] and acquired CarShare Atlantic in 2018. [5]

Communauto's goal is to provide a convenient and economical alternative to owning a car.


The impact of carsharing in Quebec was evaluated in a study from Communauto and conducted by Tecsult Inc. in 2006.[6]
