Urban mobility in transition

In the first issue of matters we talk about recent developments in urban mobility markets looking at the example of free floating carsharing systems (FFC).

The study focuses on the evaluation of the traffic-related economic impact of free floating carsharing systems and the implications for city and traffic planning, mobility services and free-floating-carsharing-providers. This is the outcome of a worldwide collection and multilevel analysis of 115 million data points over a period of a year, using data from 18 million car rentals.

Due to their small fleet sizes and low utilization rates, the existing free floating carsharing systems do not have a significant impact in their respective local markets und thus do not currently contribute directly to a solution for traffic problems in congested urban areas.
