Shared Mobility - a report for the DfT

This DfT commissioned report looks at barriers for using shared mobility, factors driving demand and the potential impacts on traditional modes of transport.

A series of focus groups and in-depth interviews were conducted with people who use some kind of shared mobility.

The shared mobility types that we focused on were car clubs (e.g. Zipcar), web-based ride-sharing (e.g. Liftshare), ride-pooling (e.g. UberPool), car-pooling, and demand responsive transport (e.g. dial-a-ride).
