Moia, der Mobilitätsdienstleister im Volkswagen Konzern, und RATPDev, eines der weltweit größten Transportunternehmen, planen einen gemeinsamen Ridepooling-Test in London.
Unlike in Hamburg or Hanover, our project in London is a pilot project, lasting for 12 months. In the district of Ealing, we examine the extent to which people are prepared to switch from their own car to more sustainable mobility services and how ride-sharing can meaningfully supplement public transport. Private vehicle ownership is high in Ealing, with studies showing that around 40 per cent of residents commute to work with their own car. The MOIA and RATPDev pooling vehicles will complement the existing bus network, while also improving access to tube and train stations. Ride-sharing can make more efficient use of urban road infrastructure, avoid congestion and emissions, and thus reduce the burden on the environment.
