Abstract
With the growing attention on car dependency, various strategies have been employed to restrict the dependency on private automobile usage, and this includes the development of a shared-economy mobility system. This research was hence conducted to investigate travel behaviour towards shared mobility among Malaysian users in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The study reports the findings from the preliminary analysis of travel behaviour and travel purposes. The study was conducted using web-based questionnaires, and data were obtained from the real users of the service. The collected data were screened and analysed using descriptive and inferential statistical methods. Specifically, frequency, counts, percentages, chi-square, independent sample t-test and analysis of variance were used to analyse the data. Findings from the study revealed that because of different user features, the shared-mobility system or service is not adequately undertaken in the Kuala Lumpur area and the present market demand for the sharedmobility service is vastly reliant on the sociodemographic characteristics of the users.
