A Case Study of YouBike in Colleges
Keywords:sharing economy, experiential motivation, customer satisfaction, re-rent intention
From the experience and opinions of YouBike users, this study aims to investigate their experiential motivation, customer satisfaction and re-rent intention. The purposes of the study includes: (a) explore the actual use situation of YouBike in Taiwan colleges; (b) understand the correlation between experiential motivation, customer satisfaction and re-rent intention of YouBike users in Taiwan colleges; (c) understand whether there is a significant influence on experiential motivation, customer satisfaction and re-rent intention of YouBike users in Taiwan colleges. In this study, the questionnaire survey was conducted. The objects were YouBike users on campus in Taiwan. Descriptive analysis, Independent-Sample t test, and Regression Analysis were used as the statistical analysis. All the results were analyzed by SPSS statistical software. The results show that: The majority of YouBike users are the students with regular exercise habits (around one to two times a week); most college students rent YouBike less than 4 times a month and they usually spend less than 4 hours riding YouBike as short-distance transportation. At last, the regression analysis was implemented and revealed that there is a significant correlation between experiential motivation, customer satisfaction, and re-rent intention. Therefore, the better the degree of satisfaction after riding the bike, the more re-rent intention is. At the end, recommendations were made for future improvements.
