AN ECONOMIC AND OPERATIONAL EVALUATION OF URBAN CAR-SHARING

Utilising cost benefit analysis techniques, in exactly the same w as the UK Government evaluates new roads and public transport sch (ie COBA), car-sharing can be shown to produce very high net bene to society. This paper shows that if a scheme were to be set up the West Midlands area, UK, then even with the most conservative estimates of car-share participation, net benefits would be comparable to those produced by major road schemes. Indeed, slig less conservative estimates of participation give net benefits in excess of road schemes. (A)
