Access to shared cars may facilitate living without a private car in the household, fewer private cars can pave the way for more sustainable transport patterns, while better opportunities to choose and combine transport modes may enhance multimodal transport chains.
Several international studies indicate positive environmental effects of car-sharing services but many of these studies are solely based on retrospective data or miss a control group.
Based on a longitudinal survey including both DriveNow users and non-users, the project will
(1) examine the effects of free-floating car-sharing in the Capital Region with regard to car use and ownership and related intentions and attitudes;
(2) monitor the awareness and use of the system; and
(3) examine possibilities for system improvements.
