Is car sharing a viable alternative to personal car ownership?[Research paper] by Laure Jaffré

2016-02-28

The author was part of the Alternative Management third year specialization program, at HEC Paris, in 2014-2015

The rise of new practices allowing to share a car throughout time (car sharing) or throughout space (carpooling) deeply unsettles the paradigm « one car, one person behind the wheel », which lasted over the second half of the 20th century. In increasing the use of vehicles, this « shared mobility concept » contributes to a much more sustainable mobility and helps ensuring collaborative consumption. Before considering these practices as real alternatives to personal cars, we need to ask ourselves whether the attachment to cars and the need to possess one, are actually fading away. To this end, we conducted a series of qualitative interviews with inhabitants from the Urban Community of Lille in order to analyze their transport habits
