Shared-mobility Experience in the City of Adelaide: Insight from a Preliminary Study

Abstract:

With increasing mindfulness of car dependency, several strategies included developing sharing-economy mobility systems have been offered to help in restricting private vehicle usage. This study provides the survey results of two progressive and innovative shared-mobility schemes (GoGET and UBER) that have recently commenced operations in Adelaide, South Australia based on the online survey data collected from the actual users of the service. The data was then described and analysed using statistical analysis included correlation tests, mean comparing tests, and analysis of variance. While confirming several aspects already discussed in the literature, this research revealed that, due to their different characteristics, the market of shared-mobility is not sufficiently developed in the City of Adelaide (the inner suburban and belt and CBD), whereas its current market demand is highly dependent on the socio-demographic characteristics.
