What will it involve?
The Transport Studies Unit (TSU) at the University of Oxford would like to talk to users of car clubs in London and Oxford about how and why they started and experiences of using car club cars.
We are interested in talking to people using different car sharing models including free-floating and fixed, business-to-consumer (B2C), business-to-business (B2B) and peer-to-peer (P2P).
For the purposes of this study we are not looking to talk to people who only use ridesharing platforms (e.g., BlaBlaCar or Uber) or car sharing/carpooling schemes.
We will talk about your personal and household travel patterns, draw a time line to understand how you came to be involved in a car club and your experiences of using car club cars.
The discussion will last 45-60 minutes and will be arranged at a time and in a place most suitable to you.
What is the purpose of the study?
This research is part of an international research project TEMPEST funded by the Research Council of Norway. It seeks to understand how car clubs might change travel habits and reduce energy use in the transport sector.
What do you get from participating?
You will reflect on your own use of car clubs and mobility, which will help us understand how the use of car club schemes in European cities can be encouraged.
