Survey: Love of Cars Possible Roadblock to Mobility-as-a-Service Growth
Hopes for widespread adoption of mobility-as-a-service have grown as car ownership numbers among young adults have dropped. But a new survey says the picture may not be as rosy as once thought. Simply put, many older drivers have no interest in giving up their cars.
Ito World, a British company focusing on transportation data, surveyed nearly 2,000 commuters, asking what would get them out of their cars and into mass transportation or alternate transportation. The most popular answer at 44 percent was, “Nothing.”
Improving public transportation was the answer given by 18 percent of respondents, while better cycling routes, improved shared-mobility options, and environmental concerns each only got 5 percent to say yes.
