About the Initiative

The Initiative on the Sharing Economy sheds light on the growing trend away from the exclusive ownership and consumption of resources to one of shared use and consumption. Peer-to-peer shared mobility is a particular focus.

The Initiative on the Sharing Economy was established by the Center for Transportation Studies in partnership with Saif Benjaafar, Distinguished McKnight University Professor in the Department of Industrial & Systems Engineering, and other faculty members across the University of Minnesota and is administered by CTS.
