These presentations will be followed by a Q&A moderated by the keynote speaker.

Telling the story with data:

Researchers and industry experts present evidence-based responses to the industry’s pressing questions, including: What are the conditions in which carsharing succeeds or fails? What do users want from the future of carsharing? How does carsharing stand up (or stand out) in the mobility mix? Q&A to follow.

Carsharing development in France:

the actors of the new carsharing recent development in France discuss the next steps to bring to cities extensive and viable solution. The new “LOM“ law, teaching from Autolib and Autobleu case will be two main discussion points that all can learn from.

MaaS (Mobility as a Service):

Carsharing innovations and growth – worldwide:

Carshare organizations from a diverse range of cities will present the creative strategies they’re using to persuade cities to create conditions for growth, users to join and operational partners to collaborate. Beyond their successes, the CSOs will also share their insights on the main challenges they are facing and how they are solving them.

Evolving to Carsharing 3.0:

Mobility is big business – they say 10 trillion per year! In this new mobility era where options are expanding, technology facilitating access and new players investing in “mobility on demand“ the lines between them are being blurred, how does carsharing take advantage of the moment? Presentations will explore approaches of how carsharing can fit into the evolving mobility eco-system and how it can become the common form of car use in cities. Q&A to follow.

Optimizing operations:

This practical session is a chance for attendees to break off into smaller groups to focus on the carsharing issues that matter most to them. Each attendee will have an opportunity to participate in two facilitated working groups on topics including: insurance, parking, marketing, relationships with public transit, working with city officials, taxation, customer service, electrification, and accessibility. Participants with expertise will be chosen to animate the groups.

Moving forward:

This session is an opportunity for direct input from conference attendees. Following CSA Executive Director recap of the conference, it will be the occasion for an open discussion about the most important takeaway and the role the CSA should play in that future.
