A few words about carsharing
Carsharing is currently the leader in the transport-sharing industry, actually turning into a new type of public transport. That is why the authorities are actively encouraging the development of such businesses in their cities by granting preferential terms for parking fees to carsharing companies, hoping to unload traffic on the roads and improve the environmental situation, because 1 carshare can replace up to 10 private cars a day. If we look at the research, the expert on urban planning Donald Shoup has calculated that 95% of the time a personal car is idle in the parking lot or at the service station, and only 5% of the time it is used for travel. The classic carshare user is a resident of the center and other densely populated areas of the city. For them, carsharing is a great way to get to work or run errands without paying for parking.

The most active consumers of kickshare services are citizens aged 18-34. And more than 70% are men. Food delivery service couriers and other representatives of the B2B segment are increasingly choosing scooters as a “working tool”.
