Impact assessment of dedicated free-floating carsharing parking

Free-floating carsharing (FFC) has become an established mode of transport in many cities world-wide and may help to reduce private car ownership in densely populated urban areas. However, parking FFC vehicles in residential areas is often problematic and this reduces the overall attractiveness of such systems. In this paper, a simulation based assessment is proposed to evaluate the impact of designated FFC parking spaces in a residential area in Berlin. For this, FFC vehicles and their users are integrated into an existing MATSim transport model that takes into account explicit parking search. Results suggest, that the creation of designated FFC parking spaces may help to increase the share of that mode in the area significantly and at the same time reduce private car usage.
