In particular, 45 percent of office workers said they plan on using shared mobility services.
Roughly 1 in 5 respondents said they had used a car sharing service before. Among office workers, 22 percent responded likewise.
Another 32 percent said they used the service once or twice every three months, while 29 percent said up to a few times each month.
As for why they used car sharing services, 39 percent said it was faster than trying to hail a cab.
