Abstract: The main goal of the paper is to assess the awareness and understanding of the so-called shared mobility among the representatives of car sharing operators and cities in one of the first studies on this issue undertaken in Poland. We asked two groups of stakeholders in Poland – car sharing operators (7 companies) and cities (19 entities) – about the current state and the future of shared mobility. Research was conducted using web questionnaires between January and April 2018. The main observations are as follows. Firstly, public transport is one of the main areas determining citizens’ quality of life, and Polish cities seem to realize it. While the Smart City concept and smart mobility are at an early stage of development, city authorities search for optimal solutions increasing the quality of public transport, including experimentation with shared mobility and car sharing. Secondly, the car sharing market in Poland is relatively young and, taking into consideration data from more developed car sharing markets (e.g. Germany), we can expect that it will grow rapidly in the next years. Many entities from different backgrounds (energy companies, car rental companies, municipal authorities) are entering the Polish shared mobility market. Thirdly, the critical factors which will be decisive for the future development of the car sharing market are: a) close cooperation between cities and operators to make different forms of shared mobility and their accessibility more complementary, b) availability of parking spaces dedicated to car sharing services.
