Why did we select this research?

New types of ride-sharing services have been gaining ground in recent years, especially in urban areas. These services may be precursors to more optimized shared mobility solutions that could deliver better outcomes for citizens. This report examines how the optimized use of new on-demand shared transport modes can change the future of mobility in the Helsinki Metropolitan Area in Finland.

Key findings:

  • Increases in accessibility and quality of service, and it would signify a relevant modal shift away from car (with an electric fleet, CO2 emissions could be further reduced).
  • The increased flexibility and comfort provided by the shared mobility solutions are particularly suited to attract this type of trips (radial axis connecting the outer areas to the core).
