We are preparing a report on the Polish car sharing market as an alternative to private car ownership and the future of car transport in cities. It will be released in Autumn 2022 and will summarize a 6-year performance of this service in Poland.
Car sharing appeared for the very first time in Poland, in the form of a self-service rental “by minutes” and available via a mobile app on a smartphone, in October 2016. At that time, the first such service was launched in Krakow and started a new, very convenient form of accessing a personal car, without the need of owning it and bearing fixed costs resulting from this fact. Because a car sharing service allows using the car at any time needed and for as long as needed (even for a few minutes). Over the course of 6 years, the car sharing market in Poland has grown in strength, to the level of several thousand vehicles permanently available in at least several dozen Polish cities, the state of which will be described in a report that we preparing in cooperation with our partner organization: the Polish Alternative Fuels Association (PSPA).
The report is to cover, among others, the following topics: the benefits of car sharing for the city, its inhabitants and the environment; the state of the market 6 years after its creation; the peer-2-peer version of car sharing; the impact of COVID-19 on car sharing; e-mobility in car sharing services; car sharing on multimodal MaaS-type platforms; car sharing on private and public real estate (mobility hubs); regulatory framework for car sharing; and development forecasts for car sharing in Poland.
