Is shared micromobility part of public transport’s future? Identifying the purpose, motivations, and substitution effect of shared e-bike and shared e-scooter use

This research aims to shed light on what role shared micromobility has to play in the future of public transport. To address this question, this research will look at how people use shared e-bikes and shared e-scooters and whether these transport modes substitute car trips, public transport options, or other ways of traveling. The results can be used to forecast the future demand for these shared microvehicles and, consequently, the potential impact of shared e-bikes and shared e-scooters on the transport industry. 

The project has three main objectives:

1) to identify the purpose of shared e-bike and shared e-scooter trips

2) to identify user motivation in using shared e-bikes and shared e-scooters

3) to determine the substitution effect of shared e-bikes and shared e-scooters on existing transport modes

Overall, this project can contribute to the possible integration of shared micromobility in the public transport system.
