Abstract

This study investigates the effects of barrier and facilitators (namely economic benefit, locational benefit, and sustainability) on attitude toward using electric scooter (e-scooter) sharing system, and further on use intention. Different from previous studies concerning car-sharing and bike sharing, this study focuses on the e-scooter sharing system. A self-administrated survey was conducted to collect the data from this study. We receive 338 valid samples from students of a Taiwanese university which is going to set up an e-scooter sharing system on campus. Results reveal that the barrier and three facilitators are negatively and positively related to attitude towards the e-scooter sharing system respectively. Furthermore, the attitude towards the system is positively related to use intention. In addition, the effects of locational benefit and sustainability on attitude are found different between "Scooter group" and "Non-scooter group".
