Shared mobility, an introduction


Description

Welcome to the CIVITAS e-course about shared mobility!

Shared mobility or shared transportation such as bike and carsharing has grown impressively in recent years. Shared mobility is situated within the broader context of the so-called ‘sharing economy’. This comes in many shapes: from real-estate sharing, to property sharing to transportation sharing.

This e-course provides a general introduction into the concept of shared mobility. It sets the broad context, explaining the motives and benefits, and illustrates that shared mobility is actually more than bike and car-sharing. There are specific e-courses both for bike-sharing and for car-sharing where these particular types of shared mobility are covered in more depth.
