Exploring Use Intention of a Smart Bike-Sharing System-Extending Technology Acceptance Model with Trust

Conference paper


This study investigates the factors affecting consumers’ use intention of a smart bike-sharing system by employing an extended technology acceptance model (TAM) with trust. By using survey data collected in Taipei where a smart bike-sharing system is under operation, we apply the structural equation modeling technique to analyze the extended TAM model. Results reveal that customer’s attitude toward the system and perceived usefulness have direct effects on their use intention.
