Abstract
The inclusion of car-sharing services into new residential areas has lately been introduced in several places around Sweden. This case study reviews car-sharing in new residential areas in the city of Malmö; in the central area of Fullriggaren and the more peripheral area of Kalkbrottet. The study seeks to explain the importance of local conditions and local policies for the establishment of car-sharing as an alternative to private car ownership in Malmö. It is based on theories on technological transitions and different modes of climate governing through local policy. The empirical material consists of interviews with representatives from the municipality, developers and car-sharing operators involved in the studied areas, as well a... (More)
The inclusion of car-sharing services into new residential areas has lately been introduced in several places around Sweden. This case study reviews car-sharing in new residential areas in the city of Malmö; in the central area of Fullriggaren and the more peripheral area of Kalkbrottet. The study seeks to explain the importance of local conditions and local policies for the establishment of car-sharing as an alternative to private car ownership in Malmö. It is based on theories on technological transitions and different modes of climate governing through local policy. The empirical material consists of interviews with representatives from the municipality, developers and car-sharing operators involved in the studied areas, as well a document analysis on documents from the city of Malmö regarding traffic and parking. The study concludes that the local conditions in the studied areas give car-sharing services the opportunity to solve different problems such as the freeing up of valuable space in Fullriggaren and a reduction in the number of journeys made by car in Kalkbrottet. However, car-sharing in central areas could also encourage unnecessary travel by car as local conditions do not require the use of that mode of transportation. To further ensure a positive development for car-sharing in Malmö, the municipality’s parking policy should take the construction phase in new areas into greater consideration, as well as the time after the introduction of the car-sharing service.
