Thematic Meeting: Ride Sharing


Ride Sharing has great potential to reduce the number of vehicle movements and thereby greatly reduce CO2 emissions, energy consumption and traffic queues. Today, digital technology is not an obstacle but only an opportunity. So why is there only small-scale applications in Sweden?

In this webinar you will hear about ride sharing in France, Norway and Denmark and we will discuss whether Drive Sweden can contribute to ride sharing scaling in Sweden.

Economy and business model could be one obstacle for Ride sharing. Ride sharing can be run entirely for commercial reasons or with subsidies. Financial contribution to ride sharing may come from employers to reduce CO2, from property owners to reduce parking needs, public transport authorities to supplement the supply or from the state to achieve environmental goals.

  • Why doesn’t ride sharing scale in Sweden?
  • What are the barriers to scaling?
  • How can we attract successful concepts in other countries to Sweden?
