Existing car-sharing systems have difficulty meeting the demands of one-way trips and connecting to other sharing systems. Therefore, in this study, a multi-mobility sharing service management system that was able to meet the demands of the one-way and round-way trips and shared diverse transportation modes such as cars (electric car/gasoline car), electric motorcycles and bicycles was developed, and a field study was conducted in Kashiwa-no-ha, Kashiwa City and Nagareyama City, Chiba

As a result of the field test, it was confirmed that this system supplied the one-way demands for 54.9% of total car trips and 43.9% of the user used multiple transportation modes by the common interface. In addition, this system contributed to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by sharing vehicles and using eco-friendly vehicles. The developed sharing system is expected to improve mobility by meeting more various types of traffic demand than existing car sharing systems.
