Establishing sharing schemes in DYN@MO cities

Sharing a vehicle, whether it’s a car or a bicycle, has many advantages such as saving money for the individual and improving the environment due to fewer vehicles on the road. In addition, it 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.

The DYN@MO cities of Aachen, Gdynia, Koprivnica and Palma have been strongly committed – each city in its own way and own scale – to introducing and extending the usage of sharing schemes, with traditional bicycles, electric bicycles as well as with electric and hybrid cars. This brochure describes the partner cities’ practical experiences of their establishment of sharing schemes within the CIVITAS DYN@MO project.
