Shared mobility refers to the shared use of a vehicle, bicycle, or other transportation modes.

It is a transportation strategy that allows users to access transportation services on an as-needed basis. Shared mobility is an umbrella term that encompasses a variety of transportation modes including carsharing, bike-sharing, peer-to-peer ridesharing, on-demand ride services, micro transit, and other modes.

Webinar: Driving success in MaaS

In recent years, Mobility as a Service (MaaS) has become a mature and sound concept and travelled through a steep learning curve in terms of what should be avoided, and what the critical success factors are. Examples of success are emerging, such as Rejseplanen app, which is used more frequently than Google Maps in Denmark.

ECCENTRIC Webinar: Car-free lifestyles

Living in the city without a car and travelling sustainably in an easy and accessible way? Cities can make this possible by installing mobility stations.

Mobility stations combine and provide a number of mobility services to ensure that suitable means of transport are available for any purpose at any time and offer a real alternative to car ownership. As part of the EU-funded CIVITAS ECCENTRIC project, the City of Munich has set up several mobility stations to support its citizens in making sustainable mobility choices.

New Mobility Hub Guidance published

There is still significant political and social resistance to losing the space which is currently allocated to private cars. One strategy to overcome such reluctance can be to provide enhancements to public space which offers immediate public gains.

Mobility hubs are a new tool for the streetscape to do this. They not only help to provide convenient and connected access to a range of sustainable modes of transport alongside public transport, walking and cycling but can also reprogramme space away from private car parking and towards the good of the local community.

helloEV launches new EV fleet sharing technology in UK

A UK firm has just launched an app that makes it easier for fleets of electric vehicles (EV) to be shared. The Oxford-based company helloEV, founded by Antony Page and Jason Warwick, has introduced the new platform in an attempt to encourage the use of technology to fight the climate emergency.

At its core, the app allows car-pooling managed via a keyless booking system to allow organisations and communities to use vehicles more efficiently - and therefore, reduce the number of vehicles necessary to operate.

MOBITAS 2020: 2nd International Conference on HCI in Mobility, Transport and Automotive Systems

Human-computer interaction (HCI) in the field of mobility and intermodal transport leads to completely new challenges. A variety of different travellers move in different travel chains. The interplay of such different systems, such as car and bike sharing, local and long-distance public transport and individual transport, must be adapted to the needs of the travellers. Innovative means of transport are developed, such as electric vehicles and autonomous vehicles. To achieve the acceptance of these systems, human-machine interaction must be completely redesigned.
