In many cities cars remain, and will remain, the dominant means of mobility for the foreseeable future due to the current urban design and infrastructure. While this will evolve in time, how can we make more use of the private vehicle infrastructure that we have today?
There are many models of car pooling available whether this is for the entire set of car users, for specific passengers on a journey or something more akin to a traditional taxi. Journeys can be very short distance local trips or long distance intercity travel.
Numerous models are in operation and others are evolving the range of available options. Operators include: Company Car Pool, UberPool; Lyft, GoCarShare; liftshare; Blablacar; Diddi, Ola, etc.
