Nearly two-thirds of people “not interested” in shared mobility

A new survey suggests that 63% of people are not interested in taking advantage of shared mobility schemes such are ride hailing or car sharing services.

Automotive Management reports that the YouGov mobility survey of 2,400 people for the technology company Stripe gave participants 10 options and asked them what their motivations would be for using a shared mobility scheme.

It says an aversion to any kind of shared mobility emerged as the most common response, with the next largest motivation cited as “environmental concerns”, attracting just 20% of the vote.

The report says the result reflects assertions that Covid has moved people to personal mobility, and is despite comments from Transport Minister Trudy Harrison saying earlier this week that the country could move away from car ownership, with shared mobility becoming the norm.
