In the extended Edinburgh area (SEStran), the main transport issue is related to the increment of the local population (+22% by 2020); a significant challenge for the existing public transport services. The projected risk is a significantly higher usage of private cars in a short-term period. The optimisation of car occupancy and its integration with the existing public transport network is, therefore, the primary goal of local administrations - and this is where SocialCar will play an important role for SEStran. The SocialCar functional testing, traffic macro-simulation as well as market rollout will be tested in Edinburgh.
