    Keywords : ridehailing; sharing anxiety; shared autonomous vehicles; ridepooling; on-demand transport; qualitative methods; shared autonomous public transport; autonomous vehicles; public transport;

    Abstract : Numerous studies indicate that the potential of autonomous vehicles (AVs) to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, reduce traffic congestion, and increase mobility access can only be fully realized through fleets of vehicles being used for shared rides, also known as dynamic ridepooling. This has the potential for transforming the public transport industry, as well as how transportation functions in urban and rural contexts. READ MORE
