|GP: Expansion and diversification of the car sharing scheme in Venice - Italy|
This measure foresees the expansion of the car sharing scheme and differentiation of services offered, also including corporate car sharing and the introduction of vehicles suitable for drivers with disabilities.
Objectives / Innovative Aspects
The objective is to expand the existing car-sharing fleet by 30%, increasing the proportion of the fleet that runs on alternative fuels to 50% through the implementation of a sustainable purchasing policy and to reduce the number of private cars in the city by designing and demonstrating a corporate car sharing scheme.
Research and technological development
ASM has drawn up agreements with some Municipalities in the province (Marcon, Mogliano, Mirano, Mira), with the I.U.A.V. (Venice University’s Institute of Architecture) and with the Province of Venice for the use of car-sharing vehicles by their employees, as service cars and for home-work journeys. These agreements provide particularly advantageous rates for the use of the system’s cars; they also provide cars reserved for the exclusive use of the fore-mentioned bodies and paying the home/office journey at the sole rate of kilometres travelled.
The Corporate Car Sharing Scheme’s objective is to sign agreements with 10 companies for approximately 15 cars (minimum Euro IV) by the end of 2005 and to sign up the same number of firms for the same number of cars in 2006.
The above project is part of the CIVITAS - MOBILIS initiative
