Carpooling and on-demand shuttles
Using cars and on-demand shuttles at full capacity
The average occupancy rate of a car is 1,7 for short distances, in other words: nearly every car houses only its driver. This makes no sense at all, knowing that a car takes up most space per passenger of all transportation modes and is also among the most polluting. Carpooling and shuttle services are familiar concepts, but because of modern technology, it can finally reach critical mass and tackle this issue directly.
