A cycle sharing system is useful for energy saving and reducing the amount of carbon dioxide emissions. But, thus far, the motivation to use a cycle sharing system is not sufficiently investigated, because of its newness.
This paper analyzes some factors to introduce cycle sharing system from the perspective of authoritarian attitude, intrinsic motivation, environmental conservation behavior and experiential activities in childhood comparing with public transportation in Nagasaki City by using the data from 260 university students in Nagasaki.
It is important to introduce cycle sharing system from the viewpoint of environmental conservation consciousness. But, comparing with public transportation in Nagasaki City, the useful perspective is not environmental conservation consciousness, but the purpose of using cycle sharing system.
