Abstract

As a part of the sustainable urban transport policy, the alternative methods of moving towards individual car transport are promoted. Their aim is to reduce the emission of harmful substances and noise, as well as to reduce the phenomenon of congestion. One of the recently promoted methods of movement in the urban areas is the carsharing system. It allows to reduce the number of private cars and creates the possibility of individual movement of people who do not have their own means of transport. The cooperation of private carsharing operators with municipal transport operators allows for the mutual integration of these entities. In order to be able to improve to carsharing system, the activity of using services of carsharing should be examined. It seems to be easy because operators record data on the history of the rentals of vehicles. The paper presents an analysis of car sharing activity on the example of a selected system operating in Poland. The analysis was made on the basis of data from the Carsharing system operator, covering a period of three months. The histogram of the total number of reservations and rentals is presented, depending on the factors selected. The analysis allowed to formulate conclusions and recommendations that could improve the effectiveness of functioning of the carsharing system in Poland.
