Our latest edition of our Women in Shared Mobility series features 3 women who operate a carshare company and 1 researcher in the industry. Incredibly intelligent and well-versed in the world of shared mobility, we’re very honoured to be sharing their insights with you below.

These are the questions we asked these women in shared mobility:

HOW WILL SHARED MOBILITY CHANGE IN THE NEXT 5 YEARS?

From Michiko, an environmental researcher, and three women operating a carshare company, we gained valuable insight about how the trend of carshare will continue to grow in the future.

WHY IS SHARED MOBILITY IMPORTANT FOR OUR CITIES AND COMMUNITIES?

From money savings for families to taking stressful daily commutes out of the equation to reducing the level of greenhouse gas emissions to create a healthier planet, we learned about why carshare and autonomous vehicles are important for cities and communities from these 4 women.

WHAT DO WE HAVE TO DO TO CONVINCE MORE PEOPLE TO MAKE SHARED MOBILITY PART OF THEIR LIFESTYLE?

What does it take to make more people #onecarless? After discussing this with the latest four women, we have a better understanding about what we can do to convince more people to make carshare a part of their lifestyle.
