Carsharing


Project Description

Innovative Mobility Research (IMR) tracks and analyzes international carsharing and station car trends.  These trends include factors that contribute to the success of shared-use vehicle organizations, societal and environmental impacts, and key issues critical to this emerging industry, such as insurance, low-emission vehicles, and electronic and wireless technologies.  The California Department of Transportation and DaimlerChrysler have sponsored much of this research.

By keeping a pulse on the international shared-use vehicle community, IMR seeks to provide valuable information to service providers, policymakers and other stakeholders (i.e., transit providers, community groups, automobile manufactures, electronic and cellular industries, and insurance companies).
