The vehicle occupancy rate is low leading to a negative impact on congestion as well as CO2 emissions from transport. A solution for this is increased
carpooling, where several people share a ride. Through a literature study,
a cluster analysis made from a questionnaire survey and focus group interviews this paper investigate how to increase carpooling in Denmark. The
results indicate that carpooling do have a potential as a future form of mobility as the Danes states a susceptibility to new mobility forms and awareness of the advantages carpooling offers in terms of its reduced impact on
the climate and environment. Carpooling is mainly used for leisure trips,
meaning there is an underutilized potential to increase the modal share of
carpooling used for commuting to and from work and education. Anyhow,
carpooling requires a critical mass and battle difficult barriers in terms of
reduced flexibility and freedom for the individual.
The study findsthat carpooling is primarily used by the younger generation
why it might postpone or reduce the need for a car or reduce the use of
public transport in favor of carpooling. Carpooling is mainly related to metropolitan areas and is likewise regarded as an urban phenomenon meaning carpooling may have an underutilized potential in rural areas. To utilize
this potential, the paper suggests that it is important to promote
knowledge of carpooling to increase the use.
