Towards understanding adoption of Carsharing

Carsharing is a service where members have access to a fleet of shared vehicles distributed across a city. Members can book a vehicle when needed, allowing for the convenience of vehicle ownership while reducing the need to own private vehicles. The two primary forms of carsharing are a free-floating or free floating model, where users can pick up and drop off vehicles anywhere inside a service area, and a round-trip or round trip model, where members pick up the vehicle at a specific location and later return it to that starting location. This research will predict the future of carsharing in Vancouver, BC and will inform strategies to enable a more sustainable usage of carshare
