Walking,community transport,taxis hitchhiking aren't working; Bike, buses are doing comparatively well;Cars are still maintaining its advantage
Ebike suits the environment in Netherlands and makes it possible to implement Maas more on bikes... Australia yet to catch up with improving bike trips.
Car share isn't versatile as compared to bikes.
Why shared bikes would dominate? Easily accessible and easy to rent;low cost item
Land use problem. If the density if less not enough people are going to resort to bike sharing.
Shared ownership. Car share requires more maintenance and looking after. Not as flexible and easy as bike sharing.
Negative view. Not yet in an era where cars can do everything. Particular brands are not evolving the right way and depend a lot on lifestyle trends. Cars go a long time without a major change. When making a big switch, it's difficult for transport to accommodate that transition.
For Car share, Convenience is the key. Cities prepare to give up car spaces to put up bikes. those are the ones that are succeeding. Push bikes are not convincingly good when
People choose to walk short distances.
