The trend towards shared mobility is expected to persist and grow in 2024 and governments are likely to introduce and reinforce regulations supporting sustainable mobility, while public awareness is increasing.

Shared mobility is also on the rise in Italy! 🇮🇹🎉🚀
Awareness of the importance of environmental sustainability and the adoption of more ecological lifestyles are increasingly pushing people to prefer sharing mobility solutions over the use of private vehicles.

As reported by the Osservatorio nazionale sharing mobility the overall demand levels strengthened over the last year. The total number of rentals grows by 41% (!) compared to 2021, while the number of kilometers traveled with shared vehicles approaches 200 million (+46%).

The overall turnover generated by vehicle sharing in Italy grows too, surpassing 178 million euros in 2022, marking an increase of 38% compared to 2021.
