Carpooling as a solution to congestion

Of the 13.5 million people who drive to work every day, 90% travel alone. Increasing the average occupancy rate for commutes from 1.08 people per car (current rate in France) to 1.20, would solve the majority of traffic congestion problems. Egis promotes the use of carpooling by offering a full range of infrastructure (reserved lanes, carpooling rest stops, etc.) and equipment (signalling, enforcement, etc.), all while incorporating the requisite interfaces with systems for organising carpooling.

focus interview
Carpooling is still in the experimental stages in France, but already projects are coming thick and fast. From La Rochelle to Grenoble, Bordeaux to Lyon, this new vision of the individual vehicle holds much promise:

  • A decrease in traffic congestion resulting from a reduced number of vehicles travelling on roads
  • A decrease in air pollutant emissions
  • A new travel option that works alongside existing transport solutions
