Assessing the role of shared mobility services in reducing travel-related greenhouse gases (GHGs) emissions: Focusing on America’s young adults

This study analyzes the relation between shared mobility services and greenhouse gases (GHGs) emissions by using a nationally representative sample of US young adults. We conduct a comprehensive analysis based on the data collected in the 2017 National Household Travel Survey (NHTS).

Key findings

   The study finds that the weekday sample has a significantly higher value in daily GHGs emissions than the weekend sample.

   Controlling for other factors, shared micromobility services usage is found to have a significant impact on daily GHGs emissions for both weekday and weekend travel.

   Carsharing complements public transit, and its users are more likely to reside in areas with better public transit supply.

   The use of transportation network companies (TNCs) has a positive relationship with young adults’ GHGs emissions on weekdays only
