Abstract: A car-lite society, as envisioned by the Singapore government, is one where the population relies less on cars and more on other modes of transportations. In a land-constrained country like Singapore, population growth (towards 6.9 million by 2030) has brought a corresponding growth of car ownerships. To manage traffic congestion, the government had introduced several measures such as Area Licensing Scheme and Road Pricing System to “contain” the car population with road congestion in check. This dissertation seeks to explore the contribution of car-sharing towards a car-lite society. The basis of approach is from two perspectives; (potential) car sharers and car-sharing operators. Expectations and implications along with evaluation of car-sharing schemes are also discussed. Methodologies herein include a public survey with non-car sharers and car sharers (100 each) as well as interviews with several car-sharing operators. The survey reveals a top preference for public transportation by both car sharers and non- car sharers followed by transportation via Private Hirer. It also reveals a positive perception on car-sharing towards the contribution of a car-lite society despite a lower percentage of preferences for car-sharing. The lower preference for car-sharing concurs with the perceptions of the car-sharing operators that there is a lack of car-sharing awareness as well as limited resources. Finally, car-sharing has the potential to grow given the growing acceptance and encouraging participation amongst the population. Moving forward, it is envisaged that car-sharing could have fully automated administrative process with the usage of autonomous electric vehicles and smart parking system installed.
