  • Purpose - Sharing economy is a promising research topic as a complementary approach for solving difficult issues resulting from market economy. Motive factors for consumer participation in sharing economy are necessary to facilitate the growth of sharing economy. This study analyzes motives for participating in sharing economy using samples from a car sharing service in South Korea. Research design, data, and methodology - Four hypotheses drawn from a new research model integrating the relationships between economic and social value, social value, and the intention to use sharing economy services were proposed. 292 valid samples were collected from Socar users in South Korea. Multiple regression analysis was employed to test the hypotheses. Results - An empirical study identified the importance of convenience and time savings as determinants of intention to use continuously a car sharing service. Cost savings and social value did not significantly influence the intention to use car sharing service. Conclusions - The present study implies that managers working in sharing economy don't have to miss a role of convenience. Although a new finding implies that convenience is an important factor influencing car sharing service, the present study has a limitation of generality that samples are mostly collected from the age range of 20 to 30 years.

  • Car-sharing은 차량소유(Car ownership)의 대안으로서 개인이나 법인에게 차량을 한 시간의 짧은 단위로 이용하도록 하는 회원제 프로그램이다. 이는 차량을 보유하는 편리함 대신에 차량을 공동 이용함으로써 운영비용을 절감할 수 있다. 15년여 전 스위스에서 시작되어 현재는 유럽, 북미, 일본, 싱가포르 등에서 활성화되어 있고, 유럽에서는 대중교통과의 연계서비스까지도 실시하여 그 효과를 증대시키고 있다. 국내에서는 아직 기업의 수익성 사업으로 시도된 사례는 없으나 최근 서울 성산동 주민의 자발적인 참여로 6개 팀이 한 차량을 이용하는 형식으로 시도되어 이제 그 첫걸음을 떼고 있다. 본 논문에서는 Car-sharing에 대한 개념, 정의 및 택시나 렌터카 등 유사수단과의 비교, 그리고 해외에서 현재 운영 중인 Car-sharing 프로그램의 사례를 소개하고, Car-sharing 도입 시 발생하는 개인의 운영비용 절감뿐만이 아닌 차량통행 감소, 주차 수요 감소, 대중교통 이용률 증가, 오염물질 배출 저감, 교통 혼잡 감소 등 많은 종류의 사회적 편익을 국내 도입 시를 가정해 비용과 함께 개략적으로 추정, 편익-비용 분석을 통해 그 경제적인 효과를 검토하였다.

  • The purpose of this study is to deliver both market-practical and civil-centric political implication for sharing economy by investigating the nature of consumer-adoption for car-sharing service. With the global interest and market proliferation of the sharing economy, various service models for sharing idle resources have also been released in Korea. Particularly, in case of car sharing service, public - private partnership projects are spreading rapidly in various local governments including Seoul, along with the growing demand for alternative transportation system centering on the urban area. This study conducted an empirical study on the process of accepting the car sharing service by analyzing the data collected from users of the car sharing service "Sharing Car(Nanum Car)" of Seoul Metropolitan Government. A survey was conducted on 281 users in their twenties who are in the age of main use among the experienced users of the "Sharing Car(NaNum)" residing in Seoul. The result of analysis on the relationship between these users' perceived value and intention to use the vehicle sharing service would provide implications for establishing consumer(citizen)-centeric policies as well as market implications.

  • The development of hot social networking services, including the Internet, has transformed rental car services into IT-based car-sharing services. The car-sharing service is a service that allows people to rent cars online without having to face-to-face. It has become the preffered service among young people who are accustomed to drinking and eating alone. Users can use their smartphones to book their types of cars and hours of rent, and then go to a nearby designated parking lot to use their reserved cars. You can open a designated car door with a smart phone and drive. It is a very convenient service to pay for the distance you drive. However, the car-sharing service already in use in business has the following problems: underage who do not have a driver's license may drive a car borrowed by an acquaintance, the status of a license registered at the time of join membership with a car-sharing company may change to a suspension or cancellation of a license while renting and driving, or even a drunk person may rent a car and drive. In this paper, the method to solve these problems has been studied and proposed. The proposed method is to reduce the cost of investment by a car-sharing service provider and to minimize user inconvenience. And, it was compared and analyzed with the existing method. For the method to be used efficiently, the active operation of the car-sharing company and the government's policies will have to be supported.
