Abstract:

India is at an inflection point in the development of its mobility system. Indian cities are currently witnessing increasing ownership of private vehicles and decreasing use of public and non-motorized transport. Growth in vehicle ownership and demand for transportation is also leading to higher congestion in urban centers, where a transition to shared mobility can help address these growing challenges. Through case-based discussion, this report develops a common understanding of shared passenger mobility, discusses several factors including familiarity with shared services, strong digital infrastructure, and a vibrant entrepreneurial culture, that support and challenge the adoption of shared mobility in India, and provides suggestions to help develop and promote a shared mobility system. The authors opined that such actions could support more efficient, equitable, and sustainable transportation systems for Indian communities.
