Joint commuting

Ongoing

 

In Europe, especially in small and midsized towns and urban areas such as the Umeå region, we face the same problem concerning the public transport: It does not fully support the citizens need for fast commuting and flexibility in the same way the car does. Most cars drive around with a lot of empty seats which could be filled with people going to the same destination. This action will explore the possibility of joining together the public transport and private cars in order to broaden the range of sustainable travel options for the citizens of Europe.

 

A service will be developed that support, not just planned joint commuting and public transports, but also spontaneous joint car rides as a fully adequate complement to existing public transport.
