Sharing mobility, a growing trend also in Italy

More and more people enjoy shared mobility: that is what emerges from the 3rd National Report on Sharing Mobility.

The evolution of the idea of mobility is strictly connected with people’s habits. And since owing a means of transport doesn’t seem necessary anymore – particularly for the new generations – the concept of sharing makes its way with a variety of interesting opportunities ranging from micromobility to ridesharing.

These are the findings of an analysis carried out by the National Observatory on the Sharing Mobility (created following a joint initiative of the Ministry of the Environment, the Ministry of the Infrastructure and Transports and the Sustainable Development Foundation), published in the 3rd National Report on Sharing Mobility presented in Rome last week.

In brief, in 2018 more than 5 million Italians (+24% on the previous year) have chosen sharing mobility solutions, through one or more of the 363 services available (bikesharing, scootersharing, carsharing, carpooling, etc.), totaling 33 million journeys.

Another significant figure is that relating to the electric share in the sharing mobility, with an increase of shared e-vehicles accounting for the 43% on the total considering all different kinds of services.

We talked to Raimondo Orsini, Director of the Sustainable Development Foundation, who took stock of the current situation and spoke of possible developments in this field in Italy.
