ESMI, the European Shared Mobility Index
The latest European Shared Mobility Index - Annual Review gives an overview of the entire European market and an analysis of 100 European cities selected to highlight diversity in size, geography and market characteristics.
The Index encompasses shared bikes, scooters, mopeds and cars. Ride-hailing services (e.g. Uber, FreeNow), car-pooling (e.g. Klaxit, BlaBlaCar) and long-term rental services (e.g. Swapfiets) are not included. As regards car sharing, only rentals by the minute, hour or day are included. Multi-day rentals are not included.
Vehicle and trip data was sourced directly from operators, open data sources, mobile applications and public announcements. Industry averages and some data extrapolation were used to fill the remaining data gaps. Companies who contributed financially to this report have not received any favourable treatment.
