RP2021e1: Greening inner-urban travel with sharing economy mobility Services

Project period: 
07/2017 to 12/2018

The Carbon Neutral Adelaide target of the SA Government and the Adelaide City Council will require a paradigm shift in the way we meet the mobility needs of residents, workers and visitors within the City of Adelaide. With transport as one of the key challenges to the carbon neutrality goal, this research program extends RP2021 Greening Suburban Travel to investigate the role sharing economy mobility services (i.e. share bikes, share cars, eco.caddies, Uber) can play in reducing inner-urban transport emissions.

Overall, the Greening lnner-urban Travel research program will develop an evidence base and propose policy and program initiatives to facilitate the transition to lower carbon emission inner city precincts.

This report explores the key barriers to the provision of sharing economy mobility services to highlight the actions that can be taken by policy makers and other organisations to support their availability.
CRCLCL Project Reports
This preliminary carbon modelling report has focussed on the GHG benefit from expanding shared mobility services in the Adelaide Local Government Area, although the results should be equally valid in other similar inner-urban precincts.
