This study is carried out in the framework of SUCCESS (Smaller Urban Communities in CIVITAS for Environmentally Sustainable Solutions), an European project funded by the European Commission under the CIVITAS program. These demonstration projects provide a means of testing out a wide range of projects in a number of cities and the results of the evaluation will assist in showing which were successful, in what way and how that was achieved. One of these projects is the car-sharing implementation. Carsharing is defined as a self service which allows to each subscriber for reaching a vehicle, for the duration and the way of his choice. In the current state, where the impacts of the pollution and the congestion of cities are increasingly acute, the car-sharing service can be an attractive complement for other means of transportation. For it, this type of service must ensure a high level of temporal and spatial availability. For the managers of a car-sharing service it means an efficient management of the existing system and for the local authorities it means the study of the opportunities of its extension. This work proposes to the decision makers an approach of aid to the extension of the service based on the modeling of the preferences of the potential users.
