    What is the perspective for public transport, shared vehicles and other smart
    mobility solutions for people in rural area? We’ve interviewed several inhabitant
    of rural area. One of the interviewees said that she knew that moving to this house
    in rural area will lead to a more car dependent life. She took it for granted
    that she wouldn’t have much mobility options. She also said that her
    environment and other villagers are very car minded and less open/enthusiastic
    to use shared mobility options and other new smart mobility solutions. I’m curious
    how you think about it.

    This is very interesting and I’m also curious to find out more. I wonder if the attitudes vary depending on the age of the user. I could imagine that teenagers who are not yet allowed to drive, and older people who may be losing confidence in driving may be more open to other options. I grew up in a rural area and would have liked more options than the bus which only ran once an hour or so, and even less in the evenings. Of course, for teenagers, cost is also a big issue.
