Instead of alternative mobility services (referring to car-sharing, bike-sharing and others) does alternative mobilities make sense?

What can be a synonym of service or an alternative way of saying?

    It could be used for that purpose, but you would still have to furnish an explanation of what you meant. Even if someone might guess your intent, nothing could be certain until you provided that. – Robusto Dec 6 '18 at 16:12
  • Of course, but the context has been already define: it is like an essay and I have already repeated the word services (especially associated to mobility) many time so I wanted to omit it. – Francesco Boi Dec 6 '18 at 16:14

    Then you should put complete information into your question. What kind of information? For starters, things like how you're going to use the word. Context. Example sentence. Etc. We shouldn't have to play Twenty Questions to find out what you mean. – Robusto Dec 6 '18 at 16:33
  • There’s a difference between the mobility itself and the service that provides it. If you’re tired of “Alternative Mobility Services” try AMS. – Jim Dec 6 '18 at 18:00
  • Is alternative mobility services your own terminology, or is it commonly used? To me, that term would seem to describe something quite different. I see "mobility services" being used to describe services provided to people with limited mobility (e.g. wheelchair accessible van transport). "Alternative mobility services" sounds like something for people with severe mobility problems (e.g. paralysis) – Juhasz Dec 6 '18 at 19:21

If you haven't used it yet, the best definition is :-

Shared transport is a term for describing a demand-driven vehicle-sharing arrangement, in which travelers share a vehicle either simultaneously (e.g. ride-sharing) or over time (e.g. carsharing or bike sharing), and in the process share the cost of the journey, thereby creating a hybrid between private vehicle use and mass or public transport.
