Research Report 663 The New Zealand public’s readiness for connected- and autonomous-vehicles (including driverless), car and ridesharing schemes and the social impacts of these

This research was commissioned to provide Waka Kotahi and the Ministry of Transport with information about the New Zealand public’s readiness to adopt four key mobility changes: autonomous vehicles, connected vehicle technology, car sharing, and ride sharing schemes.    

The research found that New Zealanders have a good knowledge of CAVs and app-based ridesharing, but few have heard about ridesharing and carsharing schemes. There are also widespread safety concerns alongside issues of availability, cost and convenience. However, comparisons with international data suggest that at the time of writing this report the New Zealand public was more aware and ready to use CAVs than some overseas jurisdictions.
