Sharing is Caring. Perspectives for Rental Services in the Shared Economy

#Showcase #Transformation of Urban Transport and Mobility
01 July

Sirius Hall
During its decade-long heyday, the sharing economy has ceased to be a financial theory and became a philosophy of life for an entire generation. Current forecasts for the sharing economy are optimistic: its volume is expected to reach USD 335 billion by 2025. In 2015, (for comparison), it amounted to USD 15 billion. The success of such companies as Uber, Airbnb, WeWork, and CitiBike have stimulated the transition from ownership to sharing, disrupting traditional approaches to business in virtually every sector of the economy: from transportation to real estate, from hospitality to rental businesses.
The development of carsharing stimulates a decrease in the demand for personal transport, meaning that it also reduces traffic density. The idea is as straightforward as it gets: the more people that use the same car, the fewer cars there are in the city. Thus, there are fewer traffic jams, more unoccupied parking spaces and, most importantly, cleaner air. In Moscow, the carsharing service began operating five years ago. During this time more than 130 million trips have been made. In addition, in 2021 the city launched the service "Ruli", which allows those wishing to rent out their idle car to friends or acquaintances.
  • How does the development of the sharing economy affect the development of transportation in megacities?
  • "People's carsharing" and renting out own car: will residents be able to abandon the purchase of private cars?
  • How can the sharing economy deal with the challenge of social distancing? How was the carsharing approach made safe to use during the COVID-19 pandemic?
  • How does two-wheeled transport such as short-term scooter rentals and bike rentals affect city transport?
