How many times does it happen to get stuck in city traffic, have difficulty finding free parking and see green areas within cities reduced? Here's how car sharing can help reverse this trend.

In modern cities, the issue of traffic and management of public space is increasingly relevantevant. An innovative and sustainable solution that has proven to have a positive impact is car sharing. Let's explore together how car sharing can contribute to the recovery of public land, promoting a more sustainable and livable urban environment.

Optimization of traffic and parking spaces

One of the most immediate impacts of car sharing is the reduction of cars in circulation at the same time and the reduction of the need to park owned vehicles for long periods. With a greater number of people joining car sharing services, the demand for parking spaces decreases, as does the co-presence of cars running in the city traffic, allowing the recovery of areas previously intended for private parking.

Reduction of air pollution

Switching to shared vehicles, especially zero- or low-emission vehicles, helps reduce air pollution in urban areas. This benefit not only improves air quality, but also contributes to a healthier and more livable environment.

In this sense, the service of E-VAI has put an extra gear: not only does car sharing in itself make a significant contribution to the environment, but thanks to its fleet of carsevaslowly full-electric allows travel with low environmental impact thanks to low or zero CO2 emissions in some cases.

Sustainable mobility for the recovery of green spaces

Car sharing is an integral part of a low environmental impact mobility ecosystem. Incentivizing the use of shared vehicles promotes the use of public transport and other forms of sustainable mobility, contributing to a cultural change towards a more efficient and environmentally friendly travel system.

As the number of long-term parked vehicles decreases, cities can redevelop areas previously used for parking into public green spaces. This not only increases the quality of urban life, but also helps to mitigate the urban heat island phenomenon.

E-VAI promotes incentives and public policies

To maximize the positive impact of car sharing on public land reclamation, it is essential to implement public policies and actively incentivize participation in car sharing services. This can include tax breaks, discounts for those who adopt shared mobility solutions and promotion of collaborations between public bodies and car sharing service providers, such as partnership between E-VAI and Trenord, where Trenord subscribers have discounts on the car sharing service present in various stations, thus allowing the so-called last mile to also be covered.
