The project aim is to improve the connectivity of the partner regions by reducing the number of cars on the road through empowerment of dynamic ridesharing systems to work together transregionally and connect to public transport. This will lead to higher car occupancy, a mobility shift towards public transport, and congestion relief. Today, carpool platforms provide a very limited offer in carpool information, this in contrast with some marketing slogans used (e.g.: – claiming coverage in 40 countries: actually present in 8 countries. with basic service in 1 country). Trying to find an actual ride on current carpool platforms is like playing the lottery. The carpool solutions are also not able to deal with today’s information needs: updated (second-by second) reliable information. and alternatives offered when there is no direct solution found. Travellers basically want a ONE-STOP-SHOP solution for planning a trip. NweRIDE will interconnect regional rideshare systems and connects them in turn to public transport – thus creating a source of information for one-stop-shopping. This allows dynamic ridesharing with cross border and cross platform matching with interconnection to the public transport system. Users can find rides in a larger community, creating higher probability of successful matching. and by connecting to public transport even higher probability to find a trip solution become available. We expect as a result a considerable move from car to public transport use, since ridesharing will offer first/last mile connection to public transport nodes, and public transport will offer reliable ‘return trip’ solutions. NweRIDE also enables people to use their local -native language based ridesharing system to be used in every visited country getting provided with local ridesharing and public transport information.
