Publication date: 
October, 2015

This brochure describes the practical experiences of the cities’ introduction and extension of the usage of sharing schemes with traditional bicycles, electric bicycles as well as with electric and hybrid cars. Numerous advantages of sharing schemes are pointed out in the brochure. Besides saving money for the individual and improving the environment, the concept paves the way for multi-modal use of transport systems since the vehicle-sharing concept excels at high flexibility due to the independency of timetables and predetermined routes. Automated sharing systems can reliably be in operation year-round, day and night. Furthermore, the user freely chooses the fastest route to his destination not being bound to bus or train lines. In other words, a vehicle-sharing system adds customer value to the whole transport chain.

DYN@MO (2012-2016) is part of the CIVITAS Initiative, supporting cities to introduce ambitious transport measures and policies towards sustainable urban mobility.
