Innovative Mobility Carsharing Outlook – Summer 2014


In October 2013, TSRC hosted the inaugural Shared-Use Mobility Summit in San Francisco, a two-day event facilitating a lively dialogue among mobility providers, policymakers, governmental agencies, non-profits, affiliated industries, technologists, academics, and other stakeholders on the current state of the practice, opportunities, and obstacles to market expansion in the fields of carsharing, public bikesharing, ridesharing, ondemand ride services, employer shuttles, and related sharing economy affiliates. Day One featured sessions on industry trends, success stories, the sharing economy, impacts, and micro-level policy approaches. With the support of the Rockefeller Foundation and Transportation for America, the evening session featured a spotlight panel discussion on macro-level government policy and the role of shared-use mobility on transportation policy and planning. Day Two featured sessions on multi-modality and transit integration, insurance, education and outreach, funding, and shared-use sector breakout sessions. The summit concluded with a session highlighting the future of shared-use mobility. TSRC would like to thank the summit’s sponsors, partners, organizing committee, and participants for supporting this collaborative endeavor.
