Catch up on Webinar “The Impact Of Different Car-Sharing Variations on Urban Mobility”
In this webinar, SHARE-North teamed up with the Horizon2020 project STARS . Jeffery Matthijs from Autodelen.net (Belgium) lead the introduction by presenting the classification system developed for different car-sharing typologies. Gunnar Nehrke, Director of the Bundesverband CarSharing e. V. (German Car-Sharing Association) followed by sharing the results and conclusions of a recent study on the impact of different forms of car-sharing.
In a synopsis, the Bundesverband CarSharing e.V. described the results as follows:
“Different Carsharing variations have a varying impact on car-ownership and car-use. This is the result of a new comparative study of the Bundesverband CarSharing e.V. Station-based carsharing in particular contributes to the reduction of privately owned cars. Free-floating carsharing, in comparison, hardly has an impact on reducing transport problems. Noteworthy, however, is that combined systems that include free-floating and stationbased carsharing services from a single provider have a significantly positive effect.” Differences in user satisfaction with the difference carsharing services, such as vehicle availability and cost, were presented as well as how users of the different types regard the joy of driving, the need to own a private car and how mucht they use public transport were also shared.
