Abstract

Nowadays, limited bike parking spaces have been a severe problem to be solved in the Netherlands. Shared bikes are considered ideal solutions, as well as other emerging shared micromobility modes, e.g., shared e-bikes, e-scooters and e-mopeds, since they can help utilise vehicles better and alleviate more occupying land space. Moreover, shared micromobility modes have a great potential to attract private car users and achieve a modal switch from private cars to them. In this case, this research aims to understand how the sum of parking areas changed by the modal switch from private cars and bikes to shared micromobility modes. A calculation approach of parking areas will be proposed and applied in an agent-based simulation model mimicking the mode choice of travellers in Delft. Moreover, shared micromobility modes regarding vehicle characteristics (speed and cost) will be differentiated, so their impacts on mode choice and land space will also be investigated. Additionally, this study made a sensitivity analysis of coefficients of utility functions to test the reliability and validity of the results. / Civil Engineering | Transport and Planning
