Potential for Integrating Low Carbon, Shared-Use Transportation with Affordable Housing Developments

A survey of low income residents at affordable housing complexes in the San Joaquin Valley of California was conducted to explore unmet transportation needs, willingness to use shared use mobility services, the potential for such services to reduce household vehicles and parking spaces, and awareness of public financial incentive programs to reduce vehicle emissions in the valley. The report finds that while very few respondents said they were unable to meet basic needs using their transportation resources, a majority did find that their transportation options limit their ability to get medical attention, travel to their preferred grocery store and make social trips. The survey respondents showed an interest in using ridesourcing and carsharing but that lack of credit cards, bank accounts and language barriers exist to using these services. The respondents also were not aware of public incentive programs that could help them use these services in the San Joaquin Valley.
