The Potential Use of Shared Mobility Programs by Urban Texans
MetadataShow full item record
Shared mobility modes, including car-sharing, bike-sharing and dynamic ride-sharing, are beginning to restructure the traditional modes of transportation. These modes have the potential to change an individual’s relationship with their private vehicle. This research analyzes key aspects of shared mobility programs, user demographic factors influencing the use of these modes, and how they impact the travel behavior of individuals. A survey was conducted in Texas to understand the opinion of Texas travelers with respect to dynamic ride-sharing, bike-sharing and car-sharing. The survey results showed that Texas travelers are supportive of shared mobility options and these modes are likely to impact future travel in Texas. It was observed that factors, including easy reservations as well as cost and time savings encourage the use of dynamic ride-sharing and car-sharing, whereas bike-sharing is preferred for exercise and leisure. Shared mobility options are often chosen as first and last mile options. However, accessibility of docking stations needs to be improved further to increase the use of shared modes.
