Ride Sharing Centre in Salzburg Lake District – Shared mobility at HAK Neumarkt school

A novel approach to promoting ridesharing through awareness-raising and product development actions involving school students.

Project summary: 

The ‘Ride-Sharing Centre’ project analysed the use of ridesharing in the Salzburg Lake district in order to promote it in a more targeted way. One of it’s sub-projects brought the University Schloss Seeburg together with the school centre Neumarkt am Wallersee to explore sustainable mobility and ridesharing applications with students. The aim was to raise awareness of sustainable mobility, and to reflect on Peer2Peer mobility infrastructure from the perspective of young people.

Project results: 

A total of 98 students actively participated in the project and some 1 000 others were reached via kick-off events and other activities.

The results of all three sub-projects of the ‘Ride-Sharing Centre’ project, including the HAK Neumarkt sub-project, included saving of over 30 tons of CO2 and of over 200 000 km of travel, through over 13000 arranged trips.
