The work shows the impact from traffic and non-traffic related sharing approaches on transport in Switzerland. It quantifies the importance and development of the Shared Economy for traffic and collects detailed information on the determinants of the demand for two selected sharing approaches.
In addition, the work shows in which way relevant actors could respond to legal framework and requirements for the transport planning framework in the implementation of new sharing approaches. The results are useful for transport planners, who have to know the future impact from a Shared Economy on traffic. Further stakeholders as private companies, associations and organisations benefit from the results by improving the legitimacy of traffic-related measures related to the Shared Economy.
Relevant stakeholders (eg. as developers, investors, legislators, government) are provided with an overview of the opportunities and risks, possibilities and limitations of approaches of a shared economy. The recommendations, derived from these analyses will allow them to meet the challenges of a successfully shared economy.
