Mobility services are widening mobility portfolio. It deals with emerging means of transportation such as carpooling, car-sharing, bike-sharing and demand responsive transport. The state-of-usage is badly known. The master thesis aims to study the French statistical apparatus and improve it to capture usage data on these services. Statistical computation enables highlighting travel behaviour in France. The international comparison shows that some countries are more developed than other in such services but mobility services remain niche markets. Carpooling would represent nearly 15% of trips whereas bike-sharing, car-sharing and demand responsive transport hardly reach 1% of trips in France. Potential estimation shows that using these transportation modes would affect very positively the three fields of sustainability. Car-sharing could go to 7% of the French population. Bike-sharing could represent 2.5% of total trips. It is now needed to develop surveys in order to catch users of mobility services and to compare supply and demand side. Data is a base of knowledge and the first step before acting for a more sustainable world.
