Abstract: In the era of rapid urbanization and ever increasing demand for moving people and goods, transport systems play a key role in sustainable urban development. With the promotion of sustainable mobility, the traditional personal mobility choices have strongly opposed each other. There is an active call to shift from car-oriented mobility to more sustainable mobility options like public transit and non-motorized modes. Assuming that urban society will not give up from flexibility of personal vehicles, the concept of shared mobility has entered the scene. A range of new services falling under the system of shared mobility enables improving capacity utilization either by sharing vehicles or sharing rides. The benefits from the sustainable development perspective are open to debate. The impacts on urban sustainability of various shared mobility schemes such as carsharing, bikesharing, carpooling, ridesourcing, are outlined. The fact that shared mobility has a huge potential to provide access in a more sustainable way concludes the presentation.
