Mobility Behaviour

Study on users of taxis and ridesourcing apps in Paris

Cabs, motorcycle taxis and ridesourcing apps constitute a major challenge for mobility policies in Paris. They provide a service that complements the public transportation system in the region. On the one hand, it can be assumed that they help Parisian residents, residents of the inner suburbs and even residents of the outer suburbs to get rid of a car. On the other hand, cabs and VTCs generate a significant portion of the car traffic in the city, due to their trips with passengers, but also due to deadheading.

In this context, the City of Paris would like to know more about the uses and users of cabs, motorcycle taxis and ridesourcing apps in Paris. In particular, the City of Paris would like to better understand to what extent these mobility services fit in with users’ mobility practices, to what extent they improve accessibility and what role they play in the decreasing private car equipment rate in Paris. Finally, the City of Paris wants to analyze the role these mobility services are playing in providing disabled people a better access to the city.

6t is supporting the City of Paris in conducting three surveys. The first survey is based on a sample of the population in the Parisian region (“Ïle-de-France”) in order to identify the sociological profile of taxis and ridesourcing apps users. The second survey is conducted among a panel of taxis and ridesourcing apps users, in order to better understand their practices and motivations for using these private services, as well as the impact of these services in changing their mobility behavior. Finally, 6t is conducting an additional qualitative survey of people with reduced mobility in order to gain a more detailed understanding of their use or non-use of private mobility services.
