Cost-efficiency is a challenge to organize public transport in remoted areas or off-peak hours. Public transport (bus and train) faces capacity problems in urban environments. Carpooling instead is cost-efficient and makes use of an abundance of empty seat, on the other hand, carpooling is less reliable. Both modes are really complementary, and should be offered in a combined way to reduce carbon dependency and make better use of existing resources.
The project will focus on short, daily rides.
Objective of the project:
- Pilots on combined offers: Carpool (short-distance) + public transport: Carpooling and public transport can be associated in several ways: Combined promotion, pricing, routeplanning and infrastructure (mobihubs).
- Impact on modal shift from solo-car use to more efficient transport, increase in number of users of carpool databases and public transport offers. Impact on accessibility to the job market.Search for partners
