For short distances we go for a walk, we take a (shared) bike or (shared) electric scooter. The city is making more place for pedestrians, cyclists and more green. Cars in possession are increasingly being exchanged for cars that we share.
By 2025, all shared cars in Rotterdam will be electric
Rotterdam expresses this ambition in the 'Policy Document and Permits for Shared Cars' (pdf, dutch version), published at the end of 2020. From this year, 2021, the first steps towards the electrification of shared cars will be taken.
Rotterdam also expresses the ambition that by 2030 about 5% of all cars in Rotterdam will be shared cars. These ambitions are an important step in the mobility transition, in which Rotterdam is working on an accessible, healthy city.
Within Mobi-Mix, Rotterdam is working on three demonstration projects
The three projects make a significant contribution to achieving the city's objectives, but of course also to the international climate objectives.
With these projects, the municipality is investigating the effects and successes together with market parties and residents. What do market parties and the municipality need from each other for a successful project? What does collaboration look like? And of course: what is the effect of the projects on the use of shared mobility and - in the longer term - on the CO2-reduction?
The demonstration projects have the aim to test the effects regarding three carsharing concepts:
Free-floating shared cars in the city.
Offering station based open community car sharing in a public parking garage.
Closed community car sharing, initiated by a group of residents.
