ESPRIT Project: Pushing Innovation in Car-Sharing

Using multidisciplinary expertise, this project is researching the needs of users, modelling the operation of the network and designing the vehicle, whose prototypes have already been well received at transport conferences and exhibitions across Europe.

Pilot events for the vehicle will be held in August and September 2018 in Glasgow, L’Hospitalet de Llobregat and Lyon where the vehicle will be profiled to local, national and international audiences as potential users and operators.

In the meantime, municipalities and transport authorities are encouraged to fill in a short ESPRIT questionnaire to share their readiness for, and experience of, car sharing. The questionnaire, which is available via the following link, only takes five minutes to complete. Responses will be treated in aggregate and no personal views will be attributable in the output. It is understood that the answers provided will be subjective and hence will only result in indicative findings. The completed questionnaire can be sent to Samantha Gordon-Harris by Friday, 13th April 2018.
