The Car-Sharing services support less car-dependent mobility patterns, enabling more energy-efficient mobility and reducing the amount of cars in cities. The European potential is immense but far from being fully exploited. In order to help overcoming the existing obstacles, the project MOMO Car-Sharing had as key objectives:
- to increase the awareness of Car-Sharing in Europe,
- to extend the number of Car-Sharers considerably,
- to establish new services in locations without Car-Sharing,
- to increase the energy-efficiency within the existing Car-Sharing operations,
- to make recommendations on how to develop and establish eco-efficient Car-Sharing.
MOMO Car-Sharing significantly contributed to more sustainable mobility patterns (as described in the Green Paper on Urban Transport) by establishing a mobility culture which is based on various transport options instead of car-ownership. As a market-based service, transport can be organised more rationally and be more resource-efficient.
