Growing problems of transportation in urban areas in terms of congestion, air pollution, reduced safety and comfort, occupation of the space, are creating the need for innovative mobility strategies and exchanging good practices. One of the measures that can help resolving these issues is urban carpooling that decreases the number of private cars traveling to/from a desired destination site.
This paper focuses on good practice examples of carpooling in Europe and potentials for transferring knowledge and experience. Several implemented concepts of carpooling are discussed in terms of resources and implementation effects. The paper concludes with recommendations for stepwise implementation of carpooling concept.
