  • Marcin Wołek Chair of Transportation Market, Faculty of Economics, University of Gdańsk

Abstract

Passenger car has influenced the development of urban space and results in the consolidation of unreasonable division of transport tasks. The traditional model of its use causes that on a daily basis it is used extensively, contributing, among others in increasing the demand for parking spaces. Car sharing creates the opportunity to increase the efficiency of car usage. Technological developments (teleinformatics, electromobility, vehicle autonomy), behavioral changes, and environmental conditions are the reasons for the emergence of new types of car sharing that allow new stakeholders to be included in the business model. Research conducted in US and Western European cities shows that car sharing has significant potential for replacing some private cars as well as a faster increase in the number of electric vehicles
