Summary:
Pedelecs are an attractive and at the same time environmentally friendly alternative to cars to cover long distances quickly and without great effort. However, high acquisition costs prevent many private individuals from using them. These costs can be addressed by a sharing concept. The aim of this project (PedShare) is to establish and sustain an innovative and economically viable pedelec sharing system based on a digital sharing platform, which is specially designed to be used by small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). With the help of the pedelec-sharing platform, employees are enabled to use pedelecs for commuting and business trips. The novelty of the project lies in the demand-oriented and efficient use of pedelecs, integrated within the operational mobility management of SMEs. In addition, innovative scientific concepts (such as gamification) will be integrated into the project in order to achieve a long-term change in behaviour with regard to the switch from cars to pedelecs. Thus, the projects aims to achieve a permanent significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions with regard to commuting and business trips.
