Abstract

This project was sponsored by Danske Delebiler, an advisory board for Danish car sharing companies, to investigate incorporating high-efficiency, low-emissions vehicles (hybrid and alternative fuel cars) into car share fleets to reduce air pollution. Data from member surveys, focus groups, and interviews with car share managers revealed that members are conscious of environmental issues but prioritize low cost, convenience, and location. The project concludes that altering government vehicle tax policy is necessary to expand low-cost, environmentally friendly car share fleets.
