Understanding Travelers’ Choices in the Sharing Economy and What it Means to the Mobility

Central to a city with rich mobility options is the complex nature of interrelationships among various urban systems. Linking all urban systems are the users of these systems. Individual users, besides using the transportation system, engage in various daily activities at certain times of the day and locations. A typical commuter, for example, wakes up in the morning, engages in preparatory activities at home and then commutes to work. There thus exist clear spatial and temporal correlations among usage patterns of all urban systems, which have predictive power in terms of traffic and mobility demands.
